Coups have to be complicated. To be successful, the “enemy” must be taken by surprise. Fail and the convoluted plot covers your ass from being discovered.

They demand an answer in 25 words or less. If it doesn’t agree with their biased opinion, they will reject it to maintain their comfort with the popular narrative rather than suffer cognizant dissonance.
