Here is my third and final Rewire Me post on the neurology of hate, paranoia, and conspiracy theories. As I said on Facebook, I would like to start a campaign to eliminate the term “conspiracy theory” as a descriptive/pejorative for this kind of paranoid thinking. Conspiracies–some of them very big and very evil–do of course exist; it isn’t crazy to believe in conspiracies per se. What is crazy is to believe that one global conspiracy suffices to explain everything. That’s what Fundamentalists and Extremists do.
