Conspiracy Theory or Conspiracy Truth?

“Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't after you.”
― Joseph Heller, Catch-22


”Conspiracy theories explain the ultimate causes of significant events and circumstances as the secret actions of powerful groups who cover up information to suit their own interests (Brotherton, 2015; Douglas, Sutton, & Cichocka, 2017). For example, well-known conspiracy theories allege that climate change is a hoax fabricated by climate scientists to secure research funding (Douglas & Sutton, 2015), that Jewish people control world affairs (Golec de Zavala & Cichocka, 2012), and that the harms of vaccines are being covered up so that pharmaceutical companies can continue to make huge profits (Jolley &Douglas, 2014a). Conspiracy theories are popular (Oliver & Wood, 2014), and in recent years, psychologists have uncovered a range of consequences of conspiracy beliefs, including political disengagement, prejudice, and environmental inaction (see Douglas et al., 2017 for a review). The current research aims to build upon this research by examining if conspiracy beliefs are associated with unlawful behaviours and behavioural intentions. Specifically, we investigated if conspiracy beliefs predict people’s intentions to engage in everyday crime…”
