Description

When you believe in a conspiracy theory, you’re not just accepting a new idea, you’re joining a community of like-minded people who share your beliefs. Seeking to debunk some common yet irrational conspiracy theories, Shermer explains what drives people's belief in them while also acknowledging that real conspiracies do occur.

Again, the paranoid and conspiratorial texture of contemporary US society forms the backdrop as the novel, highlighting the contrast between 60s idealism and the darker turn taken in the 70s.

With seeming coincidences piling up around significant events, its no wonder so many theories have emerged over the years. As the world tumbles down into a pandemic shaped rabbit-hole Ascher is wracked with guilt that her aunt was buried without the Jewish burial rights of purification. What if, instead of Hoover and the FBI imagining that African Americans were engaged in conspiracy, it was the other way around?

He points out that the government’s investigation into 9/11 was totally biased and not at all objective.No surprise, then, that Conspiracy Theories and the People Who Believe Them, a recently published collection of essays edited by Joseph Uscinski, takes an expansive view of the topic.

This collection of state-of-the-art essays explores conspiracy cultures in post-socialist Eastern Europe, ranging from the nineteenth century to contemporary manifestations. I can see what the reviewer means but I guess a partial defence of the scope of the book would be that most people when asked about conspiracy theories would think of the eccentric and irrational whether it is giant lizards ruling the world, UFOs, flat-earthers or that the UN or US federal government are seeking to establish a world government.

Mark Fenster has provided a solid and illuminating study of the public's fascination with conspiracy theories and sets forth a stimulating correlation between the popularity of such theories and the social and political values of our society. It’s the post-modern apotheosis of all conspiracy theories: convince enough people something is true, it becomes true. Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item. Ronson explores the motivations and beliefs of these individuals and reflects on the broader cultural context in which conspiracy theories thrive.

There are a lot of books that attempt to understand the lure of conspiracy theories and their effect on our lives. Fenster has demonstrated once again that the people who claim someone’s after us are, at least, worth hearing.

Dense, enigmatic and polyvocal, 2666 blends fact with fiction and documentary with invention to comment on the fraught and murderous nature of Mexican-American history. Conspiracy theorists, Robertson argues, develop a shadow kind of “capital” to confront the elites’ actual power: epistemic capital, based on their “knowledge” of what’s “truly” going on. This edited collection contributes to the study of conspiracy culture by analysing the relationship of literary forms to the formation, reception, and transformation of conspiracy theories. What if an occult conflict between two rival mail distribution companies was the key to understanding US history?
