Socialism as a conspiracy theory

There is no way to partake of climate denial without being to an extent a conspiracy theorist: if you disagree with the broad consensus of the academic field of climate science, whose participants have dedicated their career to studying the field in question, then you must believe they are either being dishonest for their own interest or are controlled by some Evil Group.

Socialism is similar in that it disagree with the field of economics' consensus that liberalism is the way to organize the economy that is the most beneficial to society. Generally, the Evil Group in question is The Bourgeoisie, and thus the entire field is invalidated, as opposed to addressed by partaking of it and producing papers that challenge the consensus.
