Conspiracy theories are more comforting than acknowledging that
life can be troubling and confusing and there aren't always ready answers. Points of view can contradict each other. Just when you think you've got the truth, along comes the real truth.
There are conspiracies but it's more fun to boil most events down to a conspiracy.

4. Why do those who don't believe in conspiracies feel the need to tell others how to think?
That is what I want to know. Time and again conspiracy theories turn out to be legitimate . Unfortunately it is too late to have an impact.

5. They think it's a challenge to authority. And if it's an authority that they have hitched their
wagon to, they will assume righteousness and try to smite those that dare challenge their authoritarian leader. These people are authoritarian followers and not open-minded "politically liberal" people.
