    And I have spoken to several in health care that have different stories, and some the same. The response, forced on us by politicians, has been either totally political, or used for for political gain, from the start. I doubt we will learn the "truth" for a VERY long time, if ever.

    That your mom died, the hospital told you what she died of, and you still believe the people that brain washed you into thinking this is a conspiracy (most likely political sources BTW), rather than medical professionals. The fact that so many people are being tortured by this and you just think its fake. Basically you are calling millions of people liars. That is what I find disagreeable.

    Remarkable is a lot nicer than ignorant. Maybe I should have used that word instead.

    This tells you everything you need to know....

    In recent years, there has been growing interest in the psychological factors that drive the popularity of conspiracy theories, and in this article, we draw together and organize findings from this burgeoning research. This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group).

    And

    Our analysis suggests that conspiracy theories may satisfy some epistemic motives at the expense of others—for example, by shielding beliefs from uncertainty while being less likely to be accurate. The epistemic drawbacks of conspiracy theories do not seem to be readily apparent to people who lack the ability or motivation to think critically and rationally. Conspiracy belief is correlated with lower levels of analytic thinking (Swami, Voracek, Stieger, Tran, & Furnham, 2014) and lower levels of education (Douglas, Sutton, Callan, Dawtry, & Harvey, 2016). It is also associated with the tendency to overestimate the likelihood of co-occurring events (Brotherton & French, 2014) and the tendency to perceive agency and intentionality where it does not exist (Douglas et al., 2016).

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5724570/

    Basically they are scared of the unknown, so they try and create these theories so that they can explain it. It is less scary to explain away a pandemic as a conspiracy because you can't control with certainty if you are getting the virus or not. If you believe there is no such thing as a virus, then you don't have fear of it. The very thing that the conspiracy theorists say of others, that they are letting fear drive their decisions, is in fact driving their own decision making. They are just unaware of it, most likely due to ignorance.

    OR, people have read history and know that throughout the history of Man's governments they have used murder, mass murder, terror, fear and many other means to gain, maintain or increase their power. Only a fool believes that those means will not be used again.

    What I notice about conspiracy theorist's is they go from topic to topic to topic with the same basic conspiracy theory, just tweaked a little to fit the days events.

    Its not much different than the thread with daily cases and trends.

    Freaky to me is all the folks who shrug their shoulders at it.
