List of conspiracies (political)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

In a political sense, conspiracy refers to a group of people united in the goal of usurping or overthrowing an established political power. Typically, the final goal is to gain power through a revolutionary coup d'état or through assassination.

A conspiracy is to be contrasted with a cabal. The two are similar but have quite different connotations; in contrast to a cabal, a conspiracy usually looks to overthrow a fixed power instead of usurping it from within.

Notable political conspiracies[edit]

Bye Plot, leads to the execution of Sir George Brooke [10]
Shelling of Mainila, "False Flag" terrorism by USSR as pretext for Winter War [19]
