Like nationalism, the conspiracy theory is a mechanism for controlling the non-conformists. This type of thinking has a growing influence on real power structures (e.g. elections). Society is putting its future at risk by allowing these mechanisms to run wild for short-term political gain. But can we ever regulate the groupthink?Read More
