There's a huge difference between believing in something that happens to be classed as a conspiracy theory, and believing in something just because
it is a conspiracy theory.
I think that it's those who adopt the latter position who are being singled out here. For some people see a conspiracy in everything, whether it be
earthquakes and other natural disasters, terrorist attacks, or even music videos.
While it's perfectly valid to hypothesise about these alternative theories, I think that it can be rather dangerous to automatically believe in every
counter-narrative that is made in response to the generally reported facts of an event.
Discernment, rigorous, unbiased examination, and critical thought, are the keys to getting to the bottom of any situation or story, in my opinion.
However, I don't agree with the premise that those who believe in most conspiracy theories are ''psychotic'', as I think the concept of psychosis
is meaningless and devoid of any tangible distinction.
Psychiatry is fundamentally flawed, as it is based on an unscientific, teleological notion of evolution, and an outdated view of the human mind that
doesn't stand up to scrutiny.
