William Rabkin nails conspiracy theorists
from the novel Psych: A Fatal Frame of Mind, p 65-66:
This is the hard-core conspiracy freak… this kind of conspiracy nut can take seemingly random bits of information from anywhere and weave them together into one long narrative. And it will always make sense - at least, to him. Once you expose it to real world logic, it falls apart. But these people see real world logic as part of the cover-up, and they accuse anyone who tries to talk them out of their delusion as being part of the plan. … These are the ones who are so convinced they’re right that they’re willing to act on their beliefs. They’ll do anything to fight off the conspiracy, including committing violent acts.
