The Republic of East Vancouver - Canada at War

The Republic of East Vancouver - Canada at War: "We’ve just witnessed, if not participated in, a massive conspiracy. Tens of millions of people every winter conspire in a flat out lie to fool millions more of society’s most gullible members when they all agree to keep silent about the truth about Santa Clause. Sure, you're laughing, that’s a funny example of a conspiracy, but there it is: those who deny there could possibly be massive conspiracies involving thousands of people or even millions, are wrong.
Hannah Arendt, among so many others, wrote about how the German people were swept up in a conspiracy of lies about how the Jews among them were not human, and so deserved to be exterminated. When professional standing, personal prestige, working incomes, even ordinary, seldom-examined personal belief systems, are at stake, millions will engage in the common telling of lies if they find it necessary to do so to sustain their place in life. According to authors like Arendt, they don't even necessarily know they are telling lies.
The conspiracy of 9-11 and the related conspiracy of its cover-up can never be compared to either Santa Claus or to the Holocaust. But these examples can serve to show that many people can be involved in a conspiracy, that many can be motivated to do so by base, ordinary concerns, and that many may not even be consciously aware of their participation in a conspiracy. For obvious reasons, the realization and admission by anyone with official authority to speak on the matter that some arm of the US government was responsible for the crimes of 9-11 would involve so much destruction of belief systems, not to mention security, incomes, and reputations, that blind instinct dictates the official version be upheld.

There were thousands of people who knew about the MK-Ultra Secret, the WWII decoded German and Japanese radio messages. There were hundreds of books written after the war, that became obsolete when the Enigma data was revealed thirty years later. Recently a woman in Burnaby was given a Medal for the MK-Ultra work she had done fifty years ago!
As you say, it's all about the motivation for keeping the secret.
As far as the perptrators go, they believe a really big lie will be believed, especially if the truth will destroy all of those "Necessary Illusions" as Noam Chomsky called them.
