“Rather than speak of conspiracy theory we might instead try to construct a poetics of conspiracy. A conspiracy would be treated like an aesthetic construct, or a language-construct, and could be analyzed like a text.

We can also use conspiracy theory as a weapon of agit-prop.” The Ontological Status of Conspiracy Theory by Hakim Bey
