[background] Why We Need Conspiracy Theories — from BBC News … ‘According to Psychology Professor Cary Cooper we are trying to stave off fear of random violence and unpredictable death. “They do that because they can’t come to terms with the fact that it could be just a few people,” said Professor Cooper, who lectures at the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology. “If you think it’s a rogue person or an unsophisticated group you start worrying about your daily life. If this can happen, what sense of security can you have?” We create alternate realities because we reject the world where a single madman can bring down a president, a reckless driver can snuff out a princess… and a few men with knives can terrorise a country.’
