Go GLP - New study shows that ‘Conspiracy theorists’ are more mainstream and correct than those who believe the government's version of events!
.

Recent studies by psychologists and social scientists in the US and UK suggest that contrary to mainstream media stereotypes, those labeled “conspiracy theorists” appear to be saner than those who accept the official versions of contested events.

The most recent study was published on July 8th by psychologists Michael J. Wood and Karen M. Douglas of the University of Kent (UK). Entitled “What about Building 7? A social psychological study of online discussion of 9/11 conspiracy theories,” the study compared “conspiracist” (pro-conspiracy theory) and “conventionalist” (anti-conspiracy) comments at news websites.

The authors were surprised to discover that it is now more conventional to leave so-called conspiracist comments than conventionalist ones: “Of the 2174 comments collected, 1459 were coded as conspiracist and 715 as conventionalist.” In other words, among people who comment on news articles, those who disbelieve government accounts of such events as 9/11 and the JFK assassination outnumber believers by more than two to one. That means it is the pro-conspiracy commenters who are expressing what is now the conventional wisdom, while the anti-conspiracy commenters are becoming a small, beleaguered minority.

Not trusting the government is neither absurd nor bizarre -
it's very, very wise.


In this sense, government is like fire.

You don’t "trust" fire. You keep a vigilant eye on it, never
turning your back, always containing it because, in a moment
of inattention, a split second of blind trust, it can spread,
transforming into a conflagration of ruin that will consume
everything in its path.

Precisely.

Soon the human race will become so skeptical that the mainstream news will become nothing more or less than something to laugh out loud at, mindless entertainment.

Most people are smart enough to catch at least a few verifiable falsehoods, and once they do the old adage that a liar is always a liar kicks in. You lie once and you lose all credibility when the lie is proved as intentional.

I was shocked when I discovered the national enquirer was much more accurate than any newspaper.

Bah. Don't be fooled! It's like there's a tug of war to see who can distort people's reality most. Your reality is what is going on around you in the moment. TV news would not qualify. Neither would web forums. Those are "virtual realities" and AGENTS of those virtual realities are trying to entice you to believe in them. Don't go there.

 Quoting: Bucephelus

I think they were a bit hasty drawing a link of the study with what's "conventional".

It might be that at the times they stored the information, there just had been more conspiracy lovers active generally than others... is it justified to reach conclusions about this being "conventional" ?

You can bet all the hair on your head (and a rat's ass if you so wish) that if the majority seems to be into conspiracy now, it's just another illusion. They are into something unreal, not into "the real thing". But it would lull many people into a false sense of security, thinking that "finally we woke up".
