      @Michał Balcerzak I dont this video was to break down conspiracy theories, just the idiotic ones. I think they made it to cut down on the ill informed from spreading these 'theories'. But after reading some of the 'serious' comments I see they failed.

      Darkner 14 days ago +1

      If a cure for cancer is already here, then cancer would not be a thing anymore in this world. And if a natural cure existed, it would've been found ages ago. I suggest you start reading some scientific papers and check the facts.

    Does putting chemicals into the water benefit the rich? Yes because they can produce drinkable water cheaper making more profit whilst paying for clean drinking water for themselves.

    • Darkner

      Producing drinking water actually costs more than you think. Do you know how many processes it has to go through before it reaches your sink?

    Stop trying to debunk conspiracy theories so easily. It doesnt work. Conspiracy theories are often faaar more advanced and notoriously paranoid, even in its metaphysical wiew of reality. "maybe rich people controll Kurzgesagt?"

    Very well said! It’s hard to convince people who believe in some myths that they are wrong. Even with real data from scientific sources. Recently I showed my classmate data from Oxford University and World Bank (Our World in Data web site) that proportion of people who live in extreme powdery halved during last 20 years. In response, he sent me an link to an article saying that this is wrong, that poverty has not declined, and that World Bank and “rich countries” fake the data in order to misinform the public. Well, how do I argue with this kind of people? When people say that science is actually corrupted and fake, I have no arguments left. :(

    I'm not a follower of any conspiracy theories, but this video is so bad... Chemtrails theory is not disproved by the suggested "rich people argument". "The benefactors of chemtrails are just taking antidotes!" is an easy response for a chemtrails believer. Instead, you should show that it would require too many people (pilots, maintenance personnel, plane makers) to keep a secret, and it wouldn't work. There isn't a universal argument against conspiracy theories, and this one isn't even a good attempt.
