Another thing I noticed is there's a group that seems to believe *every* conspiracy theory. The Rothschilds are running the fed, 9/11 an inside job, inflation numbers are rigged, every war in the world is part of a conspiracy by the neocon cabal (well, maybe that's true ), radiation, fracking... it's all the same.
The National Enquirer, Nation of Islam, many gold bugs, survivalists, etc would collapse without this bedrock of belief. There's a parallel view that some organizations (Catholic Church, Israel, your favorite political party, etc) can't be wrong, and whatever thy do is somehow for the good. Not much different from the old time lefties who continually apologized for every Stalinist, etc atrocity, the deal with Hitler, etc.
I attribute that to a lack of healthy skepticism. Many people are just plain lazy.
Dreams come in all sizes, shapes, and colors.
