“Not trusting the government doesn’t make you a conspiracy theorist. It makes you a history buff”

"Not trusting the government doesn’t make you a conspiracy theorist. It makes you a history buff” is a saying that has been printed on several images. The saying means that history tells of many “conspiracies,” leading to distrust of the government.

“Having a high distrust for government doesn’t make you a conspiracy theorist… It makes you a history buff” was posted on Twitter by Libertarians: Diligently Plotting on July 20, 2020. “Not trusting the government doesn’t make you a conspiracy theorist, it makes you a history buff” was posted on Twitter by Son of Ragnar on July 17, 2021. The saying was put on a meme and became popular in October 2021.

What’s the definition of insanity again? Those who ignore history, ignore corruption and ignore incentives are the people who are the crazy ones.
