"Hart hopes the research advances the understanding of why some people are more attracted to conspiracy theories than others."

Once they know why we are attracted to conspiracy theories, they will make sure to limit that attraction. This study is a conspiracy. /s

But seriously, who funds these studies?

Just love how the spokesman for Monsanto immediately claims that the study can't be right. Let's not even entertain that a problem may exist. Any person, company, or group with good intentions would say, "We haven't come across that in our research, but this may be a problem. We will definitely look into this further."

Fuck these guys, they would have their children's world burn if they could increase their profit margin.

How can Americans sleep at night while the USA collapses?

How can Americans look in the mirror today without feeling disgusted?

I think many buy the narrative that Americans are the good guys, without question. Naivete, gullibility, and distraction help keep it in place. If you don't know the diamond you bought is a fake, you don't worry about it.

I'm an American, and since I've started looking behind the curtain and realizing I've been duped, I'm trying to at least get at some truth and get people talking about it. I would lose sleep if I knew some truth and did nothing. I feel there are many Americans who would do the right thing if they knew more.
