Why are so many people drawn to conspiracy theories in times of crisis?

Thank you for your comment! The quotes I pulled from McGuire's article were ones that I disagreed with most vehemently. I feel like that quote about tall or short people both rising to success really puts me off, because it puts theory in a strange place. I will go back and look at some of his earlier articles, though. It certainly seems like there are valuable components of the perspective, even if not all elements are embraced.
