Since we're leftists, there shouldn't be many differences ideologically, but our community has its own jargon and idiosyncrasies which might be jarring to outsiders. Second, although we allow slurs, we are anti-bigotry and it will not be tolerated. Thirdly, the board has an anti-idpol rule. Meaning that discussion of idpol topics is not allowed.

Book Review: The Psychology Of Conspiracy Theories Anonymous 09/19/2020 (Sat) 22:18:52 No. 883687 [Reply] [Last]
Book Review: The Psychology Of Conspiracy Theories by Jan-Willem van Prooijen In this age of Qanon I thought this would be an interesting book to read. The author is a Dutch Psychologist and backs up the assertions with sources. VERY SHORT Summary: Conspiracy theories are not the result of pathology or mental illness but the misdirection of normal human impulses to recognize patterns and agency in people and events, combined with a belief-based mindset (correlated with Religiosity and Superstition). This happens in times of war, social upheaval, or rapid social or technological change. The solution is more education, as well as transparency in institutions and accountability. It's an interesting book, although the author seems to include some centrist political muh both sides waffling, although it is apparent that even though he mentions left wing conspiracies and socialist regimes in passing, his focus is on the far right generally. LONGER TLDR: Some conspiracy theories are true and some are false. This is a book about psychoanalyzing conspiracy beliefs, not judging the accuracy of those beliefs. The idea is that conspiracy theories are not based on some sort of mental illness or pathology, but a normal human reaction towards dealing with and/or explaining fear and uncertainty, particularly in periods of social upheaval or rapid social/technological change. People who react to this in a conspiratorial way tend to have personality types that are based on intuition, snap/gut judgements, and heuristics as opposed to careful analytic thinking, and also more inclined to religion or superstitious thinking (tarot cards, astrology, etc.). This is also correlated with lower levels of education. People with a “belief-oriented” mindset are more distrustful of others in daily life, and have relatively extreme or non-mainstream political views. The objects of conspiracy theory often involve groups of people or institutions that the person already dislikes or distrusts. Belief in conspiracy theories can itself cause additional anxiety, exacerbating the problem. There are also normal human biases that play into these beliefs: proportionality bias, the idea that a world changing political event must have an equally large conspiracy behind it. Also, illusory pattern perception, i.e. mistaking correlation for causation. People with fringe or extreme politics are more likely to believe in conspiracy theories. People who have a strong sense of in-group identity, and a strong sense of out-group threat also are more prone to conspiracy theories.

>No prole, conspiracies are just spooks, pure ideology, not empirical investigations the likes of legal cases. >Wait no stop don't look behind that curtain, you see nothing, stop immediately, ignore the alien sex trafficking ring, it's just your imagination you damn Nazi pinko.
>>883687 >The solution is more education, as well as transparency in institutions and accountability. WRONG. Yet another intellectualist take that ignores the fact these things are motivated. Even a psychoanalyst would tell you the same. People might very well know (consciously or not) that what they believe makes no sense on a purely intellectual level, but they have other things to gain from it, a kind of enjoyment, edginess, attention, radicality, eccentricity, revenge, etc., etc.
>>884627 >WRONG. Yet another intellectualist take that ignores the fact these things are motivated. in the book he backs up the idea that higher education mitigates conspiratoid thinking with sources/studies
Biogenic oil: Rockefeller Vaccines & germ theory: Rockefeller Nukes: Rockefeller Trotsky: Rockefeller Hippies: Rockefeller IgFarben: Rockefeller The new left: Rockefeller Ayy Lmaos: Rockefeller Environmentalism: Rockefeller And more and more and more. It's a Rockefeller's world.
>>884683 Those with higher education have more of a stake in the system which makes it their self interest to adopt its ideology instead of deviating ones for the losers.

Russia’s Communist Party rejects results of some gubernatorial elections after its candidates were barred from running Russia's Communists said on Monday that they were refusing to accept the results of the country's local elections in regions where their candidates were not allowed to run.

>>884301 Phenotype of an organism is dependent on a genotype and genotype is inherited, you might not see the feature you were breeding for in few generations because it might have been linked to more than one recessive gene, but with constant breeding effort eventually you will get there. Its true we don't get speciation yet but the thing you said about SINEs is wierd, SINEs are mobile elements that contribute to genomic diversity, but they are present in all mammals. SINEC_Cf is just a name for a certain type SINE sequences in canines.

>>882142 That's a question which has long plagued us. A couple of years ago, I figured out that Porky's grasp on the superstructure is total so we would have to wait until the system itself collpsed. I hope I'll be proven wrong, but I still can't see a way to override it even as it has started crumbling, our message is finally starting to find attentive listeners but it's thanks to the quickly-degrading material conditions as opposed to any new factor on our side. I can think of only one single way which very theoretically might work at truly amplifying our reach. Seeing as our great medium, mass organizations, are virtually dead (fuck, any organization involving more than one person is), it's time to change gears and go to the one medium Porky can't subvert which is to proselityze in small groups or one-on-one in a coordinated manner. It's easier said than done, obviously, but as far as I can see, we simply have no choice, difficult as this may be. Since we can't override Porky's noise, we should try to udnercut it. We have long wondered how we could undo the disinformation fed by television, then internet came along but its very format favors disinformation even more, and as Qanon demonstrate, what could be a great tool for cultural elevation has instead become an immense white noise generator, spawning cults by lunatics whos wear they hear God's voice in the static. In the absence of mass organizations, the only way to undo this informational damage would be to talk to the masses on a first name basis, as a trustworthy relation is the only way to get people to listen to your dissent instead of just accepting the message regurgitated from TVs, computers and cellphones. You no doubt have met some people whose beliefe in moronic ideas actually grew stronger as you tried to debunk them, right? This is actually a documented psychological phenomenon, and Porky is exploiting this (and many other unconscious quirks of ours) to drag mankind down. The only way to circumvent is for them to hear the message we already have, but from someone whose judgment they trust. The admittedly cringeworthy word I have been using for this is revangelism, as this direct contact is exactly how Christianism started ("For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.") This is the only way I can see we can get everyone to live in the same reality again, at least without the complete collapse of the existing order happening first, and I would rather avoid that, I think you can understand. If this could be done, it would in fact serve multiple functions. It could turn out to be a great tactic in the long run, because as capitalism has pulverized social bonds, this could allow us to build them back -- which would be in itself a blow against alienation -- while educating about socialism down at the most basic levels of society. Since unions and mass parties are, at least for the moment, no longer an option, we would have to get started on the most simple things, which affect the day to day of the people and help them cope with the ills that contemporary capitalism is forcing upon them. Things like neighborhood associations (something which actually tackles issues in a community instead of being real estate police) and remedial classes for kids, and even things as simple as fitness groups and book clubs. People are completely starved of social nets. The surprise collapsed opened the way for vitally important solidarity, as poor areas will be in terrible need of food security (striking deals directly with producers to cut middlemen, hopefully set up community canteens) and homelessness mitigation (organized and well-managed house-sharing arrangements, for example). If I'm allowed to dream big, this could be the seed for the future would-be soviets, and starting at this level, it would be planted very, very deep. A possible way to ensure a bottom-upwards socialist drive and some uniformity in basic ideology -- imagine, for example, if the radicalization of Russians which preceded the revolution had been mostly made by a single group (or multiple groups with the same ideology); it could have avoided the fractures which doomed the revolution in the long run. But anyway, I'm getting too far ahead of myself here.
