Conspiracy theories may or may not be true. The tactics are questionable in nature:

this sure suggests and corroborates some of the OP. Sunstein is advocating "breaking up" of "conspiracy-minded groups."

There are plenty of conspiracy theories that have turned out to be true. Sunstein doesnt advocate in spreading truth or knowledge. He advocates breaking up conspiracy groups and those that question the official story.
