Your hypothesis isn't mutually exclusive with the landings being real. Especially as rocket technology in both countries came from the Nazis research into V1 and V2 rockets.
I find it hard to believe that all of it was faked, and that not a single person in the program spoke up about it. That said, it wouldn't be the first time...
The rulers make up grandiose lies all the time:
Some more or less everyone agrees on are lies:
- Corona-killer-virus and effective masks and injections
- The Bucha genocide by Russia
- Weapons of mass destruction in Iraq
- Importing 10s of millions of 18-22 year old men in Europe to live on welfare as "war refugees"
- The climate agenda
- No proof of industrial mass murder of Jews
- Jews controlling media, money and international politics
Some are more debated:
- US Moon landing with some great Kino or the USSR flying 41 million km to Venus and sending photos back
- The existence of Nukes
One thing we can all agree on I think is that the state is constantly lying to us. Everything that is being told by the state is told with an agenda, to make us do of belief something, which is beneficial to a few.
Many people severely distrust media and the state because of all the blatant lies. 1 thing is for sure a politician only talks to you because he wants you to feel, think and or do something. All have spokesmen, speechwriters. It's certain, he doesn't care a lot about that person sitting behind a tv screen 300 miles from him, he cares about your vote.
It's up to us to get a grip on what it truth or lies.
