You’ve surely heard the exciting news that the European Space Agency successfully landed a small spacecraft on the surface of Comet 67Por perhaps we should say “Comet 67P” Because what you probably haven’t heard is that the ostensible comet is actually a spacecraft that it has a transmitting tower and other artificial structures on its surface and that the mission was actually launched to respond to a radio greeting from aliens that NASA received 20 years ago Really you can read it here in UFO Sightings Daily and even watch a video that seals the deal if you have any doubt None of this should come as a surprise to you if you’ve been following the news Area 51 for example Crawling with extraterrestrials The Apollo moon landings Fakedbecause it makes so much more sense that aliens would travel millions of light years to visit New Mexico than that humans could go a couple hundred thousand miles to visit the moon As for climate change vaccines and the JFK assassination Hoax autism and grassy knollin that order Conspiracy theories are nothing new If the Protocols of the Elders of Zion and the myriad libels hurled at myriad out-groups over the long course of history indicate anything it’s that nonsense knows no era The 21st century alone has seen the risebut alas not the final fallof the birthers and the truthers and pop-up groups that seize on any emerging disease (Bird flu SARS Ebola) as an agent of destruction being sneaked across the border from of course Mexico because… um immigration The problem with conspiracy theories is not just that they’re often racist foster cynicism and erode the collective intellect of any culture It’s also that they can have real-world consequences If you believe the fiction about vaccines causing autism you will be less inclined to vaccinate your kidsexposing them and the community at large to disease If you believe climate change is a hoax you just might become the new chairman of the Senate’s Environment and Public Works Committee as James Inhofe Republican of Oklahoma soon will be thanks to the GOP’s big wins on Nov 4 That’s the same James Inhofe who once said "It’s also important to question whether global warming is even a problem for human existence… In fact it appears that just the opposite is true: that increases in global temperatures may have a beneficial effect on how we live our lives" It’s the same James Inhofe too who wrote the 2012 book The Greatest Hoax: How the Global Warming Conspiracy Threatens Your Future So not good Clinical studies of conspiracy theory psychology have proliferated along with the theories themselves and the top-line conclusions the investigators have reached make intuitive sense: People who feel powerless are more inclined to believe in malevolent institutions manipulating the truth than people who feel more of what psychologists call “agency” or a sense of control over their own affairs That’s why the CIA the media the government and the vaguely defined “elite” are so often pointed to as the source of all problems That’s why the lone gunman is a far less satisfying explanation for a killing than a vast web of plotters weaving a vast web of lies (The powerlessness explanation admittedly does not account for an Inhofethough in his case Oklahoma’s huge fossil fuel industry may be all the explanation you need) Psychologist Viren Swami of the University of Westminster in London is increasingly seen as the leader of the conspiracy psychology field and he’s been at it for a while As long ago as 2009 he published a study looking at the belief system of the self-styled truthersthe people who claim that the 9/11 attacks were carried out by the US government as a casus belli for global war He found that people who subscribed to that idea also tested high for political cynicism defiance of authority and agreeableness (one of the Big Five personality traits which also include extraversion openness conscientiousness and neuroticism) Agreeableness sounds well pleasantly agreeable but it can also be just a short hop to gullible In 2012 Swami conducted another study among Malaysians who believe in a popular national conspiracy theory about Jewish plans for world domination Swami found that Malaysians conspiracists were likelier to hold anti-Israeli attitudeswhich is no surpriseand to have racists feelings toward the Chinese which is a little less expected except that if there were ever a large growing power around which to build conspiracy theories it’s China especially in the corner of the world in which Malaysia finds itself The antisemitic Malaysians also tended to score higher on measures of right-wing authoritarianism and social dominationwhich is a feature of almost all persecution of out-groups More importantas other studies have shownthey were likelier to believe in conspiracy theories in general meaning that the cause-effect sequence here may be a particular temperament looking for any appealing conspiracy as opposed to a particular conspiracy appealing to any old temperament People who purchased Jewish domination also liked climate change hoaxes Finally as with so many things the Internet has been both potentiator and vector for conspiracy fictions Time was you needed a misinformed town crier or a person-to-person whispering campaign to get a good rumor started Now the fabrications spread instantly and your search engine lets you set your filter for your conspiracy of choice None of this excuses willful numbskullery And none of it excuses our indulgence in the sugar
