Probing conspiracy theory's tendencies toward scapegoating, racism, and fascism, as well as Hofstadter's centrist acceptance of a postwar American "consensus," he advocates what conspiracy theory wants but cannot articulate: a more inclusive, engaging political culture. A couple of decades, a BCALA literary award, and a three-book deal later, my wild imagination has grown into a passion for exposing the truth. It’s so easy to look around and point the finger at those who benefit most from the world’s problems as being the cause agents when nothing could be further from the truth.

Cohn not only traces its strange origins as a forgery (a plagiarized adaptation of a French satire, rewritten most likely by the Russian secret police) and its dissemination around the world (spread by powerful figures that included Henry Ford), he also makes sense of the book as a “literary” document—how it’s structured, how it uses rhetorical tricks and tactics to spread its insidious message, and why it has stubbornly endured for over a century. Are the core beliefs of classical liberalism—namely the rights of all individuals and constraints on state power—still protected by law?This may be true, but it leaves the reader with the uncomfortable feeling that something is being missed: that only half the problem is being examined. Countercultural mayhem … Oliver Senton as Robert Anton Wilson and Kate Alderton as Arlen Wilson in Daisy Campbell’s play Cosmic Trigger.

Nothing happens by accident, everything is connected, and there are no coincidences: that is the essence of conspiratorial thinking. an explanation of past, ongoing, or future events or circumstances that cites as a main causal factor a small group of powerful persons […] acting in secret for their own benefit and against the common good (48). I have helped shape Oxford’s annual Alice’s Day since the first one in 2007, and have participated in French, Dutch, Canadian, Brazilian and British TV and radio documentaries, most notably for BBC 2 and BBC Radio 4. Edgar Hoover and the FBI genuinely seem to have believed that civil rights activists were the tools of the Communist International.The word ‘use’ is important here, as is the word ‘prefer’ in the title of one of the essays, ‘Why the Powerful (in Weak States) Prefer Conspiracy Theories’. The only thing that can keep this book from having the impact it deserves is a vast, academic conspiracy.

These novels explore conspiracy theories both “real” and fictional, showing how history blends with fiction and speculation can supplement fact. With seeming coincidences piling up around significant events, its no wonder so many theories have emerged over the years.

Explore this compelling collection of unexplained circumstances and uncover hidden agendas, startling allegations, and baffling evidence. These books deal with topics like power, control, and secrecy, and they can reveal a lot about how people perceive the world around them. I promise you my publisher isn’t strong-arming me into including this (now long out of print) book – which I stumbled upon years before I linked up with them. This trilogy collection is perhaps the granddaddy of conspiracy novels because, frankly, it encompasses nearly all of them — at least at the time it was written — then weaves in fictional mythos, occult religions, fascist political movements, and a post-modern deconstruction of itself. I've founded several online initiatives, written extensively, and given talks around the concept of a post-money, open access economy.

Levy defines this as a collective psychosis of humanity that wreaks havoc on the world around us – a psychosis that we must face down before we can hope to defeat it. This book explores for the first time the role that conspiracy theories actually play in the network’s broadcasts. Hachette Australia acknowledges and pays our respects to the past, present and future Traditional Owners and Custodians of Country throughout Australia and recognises the continuation of cultural, spiritual and educational practices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

This engaging book will be an important read for anyone concerned about the future direction of American politics, as well as anyone who's watched friends or family fall into patterns of conspiratorial thinking. We really don’t have anything like this in terms of a focused, sympathetic, open-minded ethnographic study of UFO experiencers.
