The Conspiracy of Conspiracy Theorizing

I learned about last week's fire in Seaside Park through a
conspiracy theory. It read simply: 'And I'm sure this was an
accident.' Given Jersey's long history of questionable
accidents-just that week I had witnessed Nucky Thompson
unemotionally torch his childhood home-the sentiment wasn't

Then I reflected on the sizable percentage of my Facebook feed
that is fueled by such theories. There is no dearth of
questioned occurrences, from Obama's=85well, everything Obama does
to the many identities of Aaron Alexis, the never-ending barrage
of climate change 'hoaxes' and Area 51's dirty and finally
(almost) revealed secrets. The world is fueled by secrets, or,
at the very least, social media is.

Sander van der Linden's article, 'Why People Believe in
Conspiracy Theories,' offers some disturbing statistics: 37% of
Americans believe global warming is the product of Al Gore's
imagination - ok, a hoax; 21% that the US government really is
in cahoots with Alf and friends; 28% that the Illuminati is
running the show.
