Thread: Are Conspiracy Theorists paranoid?

    Default Are Conspiracy Theorists paranoid?

    According to the psychologist John Gartner - we are.

    "Conspiracy Theorists are a product of mental instability"
    Psychology Today Hit Piece Labels Conspiracy Thinking A Psychotic Illness

    Psychologist Gartner fulfils the very criteria he levels at “conspiracy theorists” to claim their concerns are a product of mental instability

    (...) In an article entitled Dark Minds: When does incredulity become paranoia, Psychology Today writer John Gartner attempts to make the case that the concerns of “conspiracy theorists” are not based in reality but are a product of mental instability, while himself fulfilling every criteria for what he claims classifies such people as psychotics – ignoring evidence that contradicts his preconceptions while embracing the ludicrous “conspiracy theory” that powerful men and governments do not conspire to advance their power.

    Probably somewhat upset about how our coverage of the dangers associated with the swine flu vaccine has contributed to a global revolt against mass vaccination programs being readied, Psychology Today’s gravy train of big pharma advertisers will no doubt be pleased to see the publication wastes no time in savagely attacking radio host and film maker Alex Jones, dispensing with any notion of fairness and zealously going after him as early as the second paragraph.(...)

    Believing in no conspiracies is every bit as inane as believing everything is a conspiracy

    Imo, not really. Not nearly as insane. Stupid? Yes. But to believe nothing you ever hear, and look too far into everything, and run around paranoid about shit that there is absolutely no reason to be paranoid about is actually considerably more insane imo.

    I'd like to make a conspiracy theory outlining how Alex Jones is really an agent of Illuminati, planted to distract peoples attention from the real conspiracys.

    The real conspiracy being the supression of the soul through chemical agents like Fluoride, that attack the pineal gland, the seat of Diemethyltryptamine, the molecule of the spirit. I dont see anyone talking about this.

    Correct. That was my point. I don't understand people who think like that.

    I don't understand people who don't realize they are being propagandized day and night, who blindly accept everything the government tells them even though they have been lied to numerous times and on massive public forums, that's what I don't understand.

    No doubt. My point was that people are believe everything they are told are ignorant, and unintelligent, but less likely to be "insane" than your average conspiracy theorist. In fact conspiracy obsessions are a common trait of people with severe mental issues. I don't understand either extreme on this issue. I analyze each situation. Do I trust my government on much? Honestly, no. Not to say that everything they tell us is false.

    Here's a thought, what if conspiracy theorists are being locked in mental institutions because they're right? It would be the perfect way to discredit them and keep them away from infecting others with their "radical" thoughts. People who think differently from the norm have been persecuted for centuries. The world was flat? We are alone in the universe? What's next?

    Nobody's always right. Especially obsessive conspiracy theorists.

    True, but there's an antithesis to that argument too, getting back to my original point.

    Right. I'm just sayin that argument is weak imo.

    uh...brock said not believing in any conspiracies is every bit as inane as believing in all of them, not insane.

    just considering american history of the last 100 years should convince anyone that there are shadow cabals and political corruption afoot.

    also embryonic, religious delusions are also a common trait of the mentally disturbed...so is a spiritual inclination also a sign of possible mental illness? the logic of this is absurd, it's up there with 'muslim=terrorist' on the scale of idiocy.

    what are gartner's credentials? his background?
    the timing of this article's release makes it's actual purpose so ridiculously obvious that it's difficult to take seriously in any capacity, if only as a 'threatening assertion'.

    this is fascinating to me (Were you serious about this or just bullshitting? you may be on to something)

    The real conspiracy being the supression of the soul through chemical agents like Fluoride, that attack the pineal gland, the seat of Diemethyltryptamine, the molecule of the spirit. I dont see anyone talking about this.

    ^^^Damn you're right. I thought he had said "insane" Both extremes are very inane. Nevermind.

    Paranoia is a heightened sense of reality. The masons dont want humans capable of thinking because we are a threat to them. Resistance and Unity is the key
