The Bottom Line

The Bottom Line

There’s a tendency to think of conspiracy theorists as tinfoil hatters, as crazy people. But the processes are really ones that we’re all susceptible to. Everybody does have a conspiratorial streak.

People Find The Flat Earth Theory A Security Blanket

Flat Earth is so outlandish and so wrong on its face, that, unlike some other conspiracy theories, it doesn’t have as much of a kernel of truth in the objective sense.

There’s an emotional truth to Flat Earth. People come to it when they feel like the world is very broadly wrong. They feel...
