Yup, dissident laws. They're scared. So they use the mass media to slander us. Everyone can theorize about conspiracies, the term conspiracy theorist is so broad a term and it means NOTHING to define a whole population.

Funny enough, I predict they will use psyops with actors and gatekeepers in the faux-truth community to play the part as a conspiracy theorist gone criminal. JUST WAIT.

Yes, but on a more grand scale. Someone who is not known by thousands to be a controlled opposition.

Sounds like the Comet Pizza shooter.

Criminals claim that all evidence for their crimes are just "conspiracy theories".

Post hoc ergo propter hoc. This is ridiculous. Here's the article.

This article is misleading.

People who buy into outrageous conspiracy theories — say, that no human has ever walked on the moon or the ancient pyramids were built by aliens — are more inclined to actively engage in anti-social behavior.

That's a more realistic claim – and applies to almost nobody here on Saidit (with a notable exception possibly being a certain sock-using user). It's OK, everybody; you're not going to prison!

From the actual study's authors:

People believing in conspiracy theories are more likely to be accepting of everyday crime, while exposure to theories increases a feeling of anomie, which in turn predicts increased future everyday crime intentions.

That's a much more believable claim – and completely different to the article's title.

And this is a good thing. This kind of stuff wakes up even the sleeping. Then again, in my research, some pretty evil internationalists want people to wake and see what the US and its governence really is. The revolution is their goal, they will control it and a new system under the internationalsits will arise. DO NOT LET THIS HAPPEN.
