Why are so many people drawn to conspiracy theories in times of crisis?
Verified by Psychology Today
As a "mental health client" I'm curious as to why psychologists and psychiatrists push the locus of control while simultaneously participating in a system that utilizes involuntary commitment. If the goal is to empower people facing a crisis with the mindset that they control their outcome, why forcibly (with the backing of the government) take control out of their hands. Isn't it harmful to remove the freedom and autonomy of a person?
