Then you have not been reading the Book of Mormon President Benson 
encouraged us all to read. In the words of President Benson:

Joseph Smith said that the Book of Mormon was the "keystone of our 
religion" and the "most correct" book on earth. (DHC, vol. 6, p. 56.) This 
most correct book on earth states that the downfall of two great American 
civilizations came as a result of secret conspiracies whose desire was to 
overthrow the freedom of the people. "And they have caused the destruction 
of this people of whom I am now speaking," says Moroni, "and also the 
destruction of the people of Nephi." (Ether 8:21.)

Now undoubtedly Moroni could have pointed out many factors that led to the 
destruction of the people, but notice how he singled out the secret 
combinations, just as the Church today could point out many threats to 
peace, prosperity, and the spread of God's work, but it has singled out as 
the greatest threat the Godless conspiracy. There is no conspiracy theory 
in the Book of Mormon—it is a conspiracy fact.
  (Ezra Taft Benson, Conference Report, April 1972; Also quoted in God, 
Family, Country: Our Three Great Loyalties [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book 
Co., 1974], 322.)
