How do I talk with loved ones about conspiracies?

Whether it is the election or the pandemic, people have a lot of thoughts about what is actually going on in the world today. My family is no different. They have so much to say about where the pandemic came from and who really won the election. I am fine with people sharing thoughts, but many of my family members are spewing misinformation that is proven to be wrong, yet they still think it is truth. What can I do with this? Help!

Who wrote "To Kill A Mockingbird?"

Harper Lee wrote "To Kill A Mockingbird," but I am not so sure. There is a conspiracy out there that Harper Lee did not write the classic. Harper Lee was childhood friends with Truman Capote, the writer of "In Cold Blood" and "Breakfast At Tiffany's." Lee only published one other book during her lifetime, and Capote wrote dozens. Of course, Lee's sister, Alice C. Lee, has her family's back saying Harper wrote the text, but if Capote was around, I wonder what he would say. Who do you think is the author? Comment if you think it was someone else.

The man from Taured

Back in 1954, a man arrived at the airport in Tokyo, Japan on business. He ended up being questioned by customs, because his passport listed that he was from the country Taured. A place that is nowhere on our map, which left him perplexed when he went to point it out on the map. His passport was stamped, showing that he frequently traveled to Japan and many other countries. He even had currency from these places. The company that he said he worked for had no record of him. He told them about the hotel he was booked at, but again they had no record of him or his reservation. Of course, this caused the custom officers to hold him for questioning due to the confusion and the fact that the country listed on his passport didn't exist. They took him to a hotel for interrogation and placed two officers outside his door since they couldn't be sure he wasn't some type of criminal. The next day, he was gone. They couldn't find any proof that he escaped, and all the documents that had taken from him disappeared as well. Some believe that he was a time traveller, others believe he was from a parallel universe. Some believe that something strange happened, but over the years the story has been exaggerated. A lot of people don't believe it at all. Are you familiar with the story? If so, what do you think is truth?

MK-Ultra and the CIA

For a world that doesn't believe in the ability of psychics or other unnatural phenomena, our (US) government sure does quite a bit of testing on the matter. Most are familiar with MK-Ultra, but if you are not, this was a secret operation ran by the CIA from 1953 to 1973. The point of it was to find out if they could use mind control tactics on people. LSD and other drugs were given to people knowingly and some unknowingly to see how they reacted and if they could weaken their state of mind. When others learned of this operation, the CIA director at the time ordered people to destroy all documents related to the matter. That's when Operation MK-Ultra was shut down. Or was it? Do you believe that the government is still carrying out these secret operations without our knowledge?
