- Their goals would not have been legally permissible or publicly palatable if conducted openly.
- Each covers-up the truth. Deception is the foundation of its existence. In uncovering each conspiracy there is one truth and there is one conspiracy, but one can become the other, if the truth seekers are successful.
- The goals are determined to be worth significant cost and risk to those conspiring to carry out the actions.
- Often carrying through is deemed worth the loss of life of innocents. The ends justifies the means.
- No conspiracy is perfect. All are found to be suspicious by someone, either during the actions, or in the months and years following the actions. All leave clues.
- Disclosure of suspicions of all conspiracies always meet with disbelief from reasonable people.
- Prior to planning, the accomplishment of the goal is thought to be unlikely by those involved. This dismay is the motivating factor for secretive human manipulation of circumstances towards the desired goal. This doubt of the realistic lingers with the conspiracy for an indeterminate number of years.
- Every conspiracy begins with the desires of one person. A large or greatly influencing goal is always supported by power and money or both.
- Never is a conspiracy learned in full, or in part, by anyone with involvement, who does not have a need to know. Each will use unknowing participants when possible.
