|Secret agreements to commit illegal acts.|
A conspiracy is a secret agreement amongst a group of people (termed "conspirators") to carry out a nefarious act.
Conspiracies, when groups of people secretly arrange to commit illegal acts, do happen. See this website for a large number of such event. Many however, are steadfastly denied by the keepers of the official narrative, and are minimized with the pejorative "conspiracy theory". The word "conspiracy" by contrast is rarely applied to acts by establishment groups, even when it applies.
Usage by corporate media
CNN has used the word "Conspiracy" as an abbreviation for "Conspiracy theory", as for example in the headline Trump uses IG report to spread 'deep state' conspiracy. The single quotes around "deep state" reflect its ongoing refusal to admit the reality of the US deep state. Its equation of conspiracy with conspiracy theory, although grossly inaccurate, reflects corporate media policy as advised by the CIA memo Countering Criticism of the Warren Report, which encouraged its media assets to ridicule anyone questioning the good faith of the US government.
Most of the deep events on Wikispooks are conspiracies - coordinated illegal acts with multiple perpetrators. All the False Flag Attacks and assassinations could be described as such, but the examples listed below are is acts which aren't well described by other substantives.
