In this way, How America Lost Its Secrets plunges down rabbit holes, each leading to its own Wonderland. In building up his scenarios, Epstein deploys dozens of instances of variants of the words “presume,” “assume,” and “might have.” He describes things he believes “could have been,” things he interprets as “possible,” things he supposes were “likely,” and things he maintains were “suggested.” He piles inferences atop other inferences, as with “if so, it seems plausible to believe”; “if that is the case, then”; and “if so, it wasn’t much of a leap to assume.” He weaves cobwebs of conjecture that start with phrases like “it doesn’t take a great stretch of the imagination to conclude” and “it is not difficult to imagine.”
