Anonjedi (Sami) offers a great theory on why so many of today’s hoaxes appear silly and sloppy to the full time amateur researchers like fakeologists. There’s always a reason, there are no blatant mistakes in psyOps (due to their military precision planning). My idea that there will be an increasing and growing divide between those aware of the big and little hoaxes and the majority oblivious still fits. If the doubting camp gets too big then the logical military move is to divide that group up and have them infighting. Divide and conquer at every step.
My guess is that part of the 220;in your face” style of fakery these days is to have more people (such as amateur online researchers) to confuse and muddy the waters with their youtube videos and shill/gatekeeping activity. So that one day when one searches for the word “fakery” or “hoax”, one would be bombarded with millions of hits and never find one’s way to the serious research.
