Why are so many people drawn to conspiracy theories in times of crisis?
Verified by Psychology Today
Wow it's taking a 'study' to 'reveal' that cheap phony sentiments are worthless to all but the naive?
This is only relevant because of the 'self esteem' stupidity that psycho-logists have been foisting on us for decades. And they were SO sure they were SO right! And now they're back-pedaling. As they always do.
People wise up! Most psychology 'studies' are project papers from undergrads! Yes, if you take this silliness seriously, you're basically trying to live your life based on your college students' classwork.
If your 19 yr old is all that wise then s/he probably has nothing left to learn. Which means, of course, that the 20-somethings amongst us are the sages of our age. Those Millenials are obviously gonna save us all! Hooray.
