Believe in conspiracy theories? You’re probably a narcissist: People who doubt the moon landings are more likely to be selfish and attention-seeking … Psychologists from the University of Kent carried out three online studies … -UK Daily Mail

We are seeing an increasing number of academic studies analyzing the psychology behind “conspiracy theorists” and those who question government propaganda. The idea being that people who don’t trust government may be mentally ill.

These analyses are published in prominent publications in the UK and are building a “scientific” literature revolving psychological dysfunction and “conspiracy theory.”

More:

Do you think the moon-landings were faked, vaccines are a plot for mind control, or that shadowy government agencies are keeping alien technology locked up in hidden bunkers?

If so, chances are you’re a narcissist with low self-esteem, according to psychologists. In the internet age conspiracy theories can incubate in quiet corners of the web, but it may be psychological predispositions of believers which keep them alive, rather than cold hard facts.

The article goes on to explain that researchers at the University of Kent have used online studies  from hundreds of people to generate the study’s conclusions.

The findings appeared in the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science with the suggestion that those who adopt conspiracy theories have “outwardly inflated self-confidence” but may be “overcompensating for a lack of belief in themselves.”

The article mentions a previous study conducted by Oxford’s Dr. David Robert Grimes.

From what we’ve written on this study:

Grimes had the idea that mathematics could prove or disprove certain conspiracy theories. A physicist, he “developed a mathematical equation to derive the truth of conspiracy theories,” according to the Christian Science Monitor …

Grimes calculated that the moon landing and climate change conspiracies “would require about 400,000 secret-keepers each, the unsafe vaccination conspiracy would involve 22,000 people, and the cancer cure conspiracy would involve over 710,000 people.”  Even with the utmost secrecy, Grimes reports, his equations show within four years the conspiracies would be exposed nonetheless.

At the time, we commented on Grimes’s apparent “earnestness” in struggling to “understand how people can even engage in conspiratorial thinking to begin with.” We made this comment in relationship to yet a third article on the psychology of conspiracy.

This commentary appeared in the Guardian and, as we pointed out, “argued against conspiratorial thinking based on a new book, Suspicious Minds … written by Rob Brotherton.”

Basically, the idea is that people are naturally prone to conspiracy theories because of the way their brains have evolved. “Identifying patterns and being sensitive to possible threats,” the article explains, “is what has helped us survive in a world where nature often is out to get you.”

Brotherton explains in the article that he decided that the best way to present his thesis was to avoid confronting conspiracy theories head on. Instead, he wanted to explain how people adopted such theories for psychological reasons.

“I wanted to take a different approach, to sidestep the whole issue of whether the theories are true or false and come at it from the perspective of psychology. The intentionality bias, the proportionality bias, confirmation bias. We have these quirks built into our minds that can lead us to believe weird things without realising that’s why we believe them.”

So here we have three explanations of conspiracy theories presented by major publications in less than three month’s time. And, who knows, perhaps there were more.

In the conclusion to our Grimes’ analysis, we noted that: “It looks as if a more powerful and disciplined program may be underway. Something to ponder along with a further moderation of certain public declarations.”

By “public declarations” we meant those of individuals prone to mentioning conspiracy theories in non-appropriate contexts. As it turns out, we anticipated the current news cycle only by a couple of months.

Just this week, in fact, Attorney General Loretta Lynch attended a Senate Judiciary Hearing and acknowledged discussions at the Department of Justice of taking civil action against “climate change deniers.”

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) questioned her on the issue and drew comparisons between such deniers and the tobacco industry that claimed for decades that the tobacco was not proven to cause ill health.

The Clinton administration eventually brought a successful civil suit against Big Tobacco. And Whitehouse suggested that civil or criminal charges might be brought against “anti-warmists.”

The forces of intolerance are gathering in the US, just as overseas.

We have urged in the past that people pay close attention to these growing trends. By turning statements of opinion into a psychological condition they are trying to discredit anyone who speaks out against the government.

In the Soviet Union, people who spoke out against government policies were often placed in mental asylums. At the time, concerned citizens in the West protested such incarcerations as barbaric abuses. Yet now, if our supposition is correct, these practices are about to expand in the West as well.

Conclusion: This attack on dissent is serious. Educate your family and friends about what’s going on. Do not be fooled by their propaganda, but beware of the risks of speaking out too freely.

4.

5.

a person who accepts the doctrines of philosophical idealism, as by representing things in an ideal form, or as they might or should be rather than as they are.

 

Idealistically, one assumes that another is always telling the truth, and if he is not telling the truth he becomes a liar. In essence, we may prescribe that telling the truth is a “normal” behavior and thus a word has not been given to describe it. Truth is simply, Truth. Similarly, there are no simple antonyms for killer or robber.

    They can accuse us as much as they like. We know the true enemy and what they have done. Speaking out loudly scares them to death. Making policies against the truth will never stop the fightback. They are exposed and naked lies won’t protect them anymore.

        The Earth “is said to rotate” once in a 24 hour period.
        The Earth ” is said to rotate” at 1,000 miles per hour.

        The Earth… “is said to be”… 93 million miles away from the sun.

        Hi, talking of societal pivots.
        I want to say a few things.
        HS2 im suspicious of and think is a long standing cover for underground bases, and dare I say it shelters that they actually care about the population? Not really not with the numbers flooding in, its clear they want mayhem on the surface.
        Fred Forsyths done some novels and sales hasn’t he. Its said too he was in the services. And then we see him on is it the express or standard, his column discussing HS2. As many others do. Its a cover.

        This isn’t meant to be a nail in the coffin depressing comment. I do make strenuous efforts to find positives with a real foundation simply because I cannot cope myself with doom on the levels some are saying

        But could there be a physics, a metaphysics trick going on here, by those in the know? Could it be if those in the awakened , inverted commas, community, believe devastating red dust, earthquake nuclear plant famine cannibalism fighting in the streets you name it……does that fear vibrational energy actually play into the black magicians hands and alter Hercolubus’ trajectory and course and severity?

        ive read this somewhere which I may raise another time
        Could rejecting the material world excesses, and embracing God, and could too reducing our egos. If it really happens on a big enough scale (think Princeton global consciousness project RNGs) . Could this be enough to actually make the lessons Hercoloubus could teach us be less harsh?

        I don’t see Hercolubus as simplyh a planet as ive seen in places, its an extradimensional planet too.

        It is fascinating to think human consciousness could interact with Planet X and cause it to veer and teach us less harsh lessons.

        Therefore are we doing enough to help, awaken, teach the word of God?

Moses here compares the tribe to a young lion that suddenly leaps from its lair in Bashan on the object of its attack. Both similitudes relate to the vigor and force which the tribe should display in conflict.

    What an absurdity!
    To be reported for being opposed to the occupation by the state of Israel!
    It least it shows how low the pro-Israel lobbyists are going, by reporting people who stand up against injustice and oppression!

    When we in the west claim to be defending democracy, freedom of expression, freedom of speech as well as our values and norms, it is unacceptable that supporters and lobbyists of oppressive systems try to prevent the exercise of these rights for all who live here!

    It perhaps is time to expose more of the nature of the pro-Israel lobbyists, their attempts of destroying the free world, its values and norms, and to stand up to the influence of these supporters of oppressive systems at all levels!
    When we accept these kind of attempts of intimidation of people who speak out against oppressive systems, we will be in the end accepting being ruled by these same oppressive systems, and thus loose our own values and norms!

    Standing up to suppression and oppression is not only a right, it is our duty to do so, as when we do not we will become subject to them, become part of them!

      Woman arrested in France for T-shirt critical of Israel

      Ali Abunimah

      France has ratcheted up its draconian repression of free speech about Palestine with the arrest of a woman for wearing a T-shirt supporting the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement.

      The activist was taking part in a march for International Women’s Day in Paris last Sunday when undercover police swooped in and detained her for wearing a piece of clothing with the words “Boycott Apartheid Israel” printed on it.

      According to the newspaper L’Humanité, officers from the Renseignements Généraux, the intelligence service of the French police, were involved in monitoring the demonstration in which numerous social justice and leftist groups took part.

      France remains under the state of emergency severely limiting public freedoms that was declared after last November’s atrocities by suspected Islamic State extremists who killed 130 people in Paris.

      The young woman was taken to Paris’ 3rd district police station for questioning.

      Hundreds of marchers halted their procession and demonstrated loudly outside the police station for an hour until she was released, as a video posted on Facebook.

      Political repression

      The woman has been summoned back to the police station for questioning at 2pm on Monday on suspicion of “inciting hatred by reason of [national] origin, through writing,” according to L’Humanité.

      Supporters are planning to demonstrate outside the police station at that time.

      The feminist collective 8 Mars Pour TouTEs denounced the arrest and pledged support for the activist and for the BDS movement.

      The arrest was evidence of the “criminalization of political struggles,” the group said, vowing to mount strong solidarity in response to “the police state and political and racist repression.”

      The left-wing grouping Ensemble has condemned the arrest, describing it as a consequence of the “security climate” in France.

      The Palestine solidarity group BDS France noted that the day after the arrest, Prime Minister Manuel Valls tolda dinner hosted by the Israel lobby group CRIF that “anti-Zionism is nothing more than a synonym for anti-Semitism and the hatred of Israel.”

      “Today, politicians who support the Israeli apartheid regime are out of arguments,” BDS France said in a statement.

      “They conflate anti-Zionism with anti-Semitism and terrorism, and take all the Jews of the world hostage, stubbornly insisting that they become accomplices of the war crimes and apartheid of a state which is foreign to them,” BDS France added.

      The campaign group said that with the growing global success of BDS, “a nonviolent, anti-racist citizen movement for the fundamental rights of the Palestinian people,” Israel and its allies in the French government had no recourse but to try to smear it as anti-Semitic.

      Court rulings and government decrees have outlawed calls to boycott Israeli goods, prompting defiance from French civil society.

      Undeterred

      BDS France is also vowing not to fold under government repression.

      On Thursday, dozens of activists handed in an international petition at the Paris offices of Airbnb to protest the company’s profiting from the renting out of vacation homes in Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank.

      As the photos published by BDS France show, the activists were proudly wearing their “Boycott Israeli Apartheid” T-shirts.

      On Saturday, activists will hold rallies all over France against the state of emergency. An action alert from BDS France urges supporters to wear their T-shirts at those marches too.”

    Arizona Sheriff Denies Journalist Access to Press Conference After Explosive Investigative Report Proves Sheriff had Lied
    March 12, 2016

    A high-ranking sheriff’s official in Arizona refused to allow a television news reporter into a press conference on the basis that the reporter “hates the sheriff.”
    But the reporter only exposed an embarrassing truth about Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu that the sheriff had been denying for years.
    That he was, in fact, a sadistic schoolmaster who oversaw and encouraged the abuse of children during a prior career more than a decade ago in Massachusetts.
    ABC15’s Dave Biscobing even had video proof of Babeu from that period, showing the sheriff bragging about how he enjoyed abusing the students, forcing them into corners for hours and weeks at a time.
    And that apparently is the reason why Babeu’s director of administration, Tim Gaffney, barred Biscobing from entering the press conference Tuesday at the Pinal County Sheriff’s headquarters while allowing other reporters inside.
    “You just have a problem with reporting accurately,” Gaffney stated, unable to point out exactly what was inaccurate about Biscobing’s scathing report, which was published in January.
    It was an arrogant, unconstitutional move which is now backfiring on the sheriff and his henchman.
    Babeu, after all, is running for congress this year, so the power move allowed two of his opponents to quickly criticize the sheriff’s actions as despicable.
    And ABC15 says it will likely take legal action against Babeu from barring its reporter into the press conference.
    Meanwhile, Biscobing’s series of investigative reports on Babeu will likely be receiving a lot more attention now than it did when it first aired.
    Especially considering Babeu had previously denied any knowledge of the abuse that took place at the boarding school where he served as headmaster and executive director from 1999 to 2001.
    Babeu has also previously denied having an “inappropriate” sexual relationship with a 17-year-old male student at the DeSisto School in Massachusetts when he was headmaster and executive director during his early 30s.
    But several former students as well as his own sister claim otherwise.
    It was, in fact, Lucy Babeu, a longtime critic of her brother, who sent Biscobing the home video of the 1999 Christmas family gathering where he sat around a table, bragging about the abuse that took place at the school.
    “I have thousands of videos of Paul’s career,” Lucy Babeu said in an interview with Photography is Not a Crime. Read more: https://photographyisnotacrime.com/2016/03/11/arizona-sheriff-denies-journalist-access-to-press-conference-after-explosive-investigative-report-proves-sheriff-had-lied/
