Why are so many people drawn to conspiracy theories in times of crisis?
Verified by Psychology Today
If you don’t like conspiracy theories, I would like to hear YOUR explanation of some recent events.
1) In France, Hydroxychloroquine was available over the counter until January 2020. Suddenly, a prescription was required. How do you explain that sudden change?
2) Also in reference to Hydroxychloroquine: countries where Hydroxychloroquine is freely available, and is used prophylactically and for early treatment of COVID, have 75% lower death rates from COVID than in countries where it’s use is more restricted (see hcqtrial dot com). The USA is one of those countries where Hydroxychloroquine’s use is more restricted. Millions of doses sit in FDA warehouses, but good luck finding a doctor willing to write a prescription. Why is that the case?
3) The mayor of Portland, Oregon has allowed rioting, looting, arson, beatings, and murder by leftist thugs in Antifa and Black Lives Matter to continue there for three months. Why is that happening?
4) When asked about Antifa violence in Portland, Congressman Jerrold Nadler called it a “myth”. Why would he do that?
