    Conspiracy Theorists both make me laugh (unintentionally) and, in large doses, give me a headache. They seem so intent on believing that they disregard 99.999% of the evidence and focus on some obscure 0.0001% data point. It gets even worse. I've seen interviews where they refuse to acknowledge when an expert -- a person who actually have the training and experience to interpret the evidence in totality -- explains how the Conspiracy Theorists' data and. or interpretation is wrong.

They seem so intent on believing that they disregard 99.999% of the evidence and focus on some obscure 0.0001% data point. It gets even worse. I've seen interviews where they refuse to acknowledge when an expert -- a person who actually have the training and experience to interpret the evidence in totality -- explains how the Conspiracy Theorists' data and. or interpretation is wrong. And yet, the truth causes Conspiracy Theorists and their followers to dig in their heels deeper. And insult those of us who are actually thinking -- considering evidence sources, and accepting only high-quality, verified facts as evidence. Calling us "sheeple" for "sheep" + "people." Problem is, the people who earn a living stoking people's fears enrage people over nothing. So while Alex Jones wrings his hands about the feds using Jade Helm 15 to impose martial law in the south, people freak-out. Inevitably, the conspiracy is exposed as a hoax when exposed to reality. Just like when nothing happened during jade Helm 15. Conspiracy Theorists hoodwink their followers -- perhaps through knowingly lying, perhaps through honestly-held beliefs that smack of paranoid delusions -- into ignoring real-life tragedies, which are often less "explosive," though often just as deadly. Like Flint, where children were poisoned to save a few dollars. Or the on-going tragedy of cops shooting minorities without provocation, with smart phones capturing video that verifies what minorities have known all along: cops are more aggressive when dealing with minority criminals versus white criminals. BTW. I love conspiracy in fiction. Thrillers, the "X-Files," Thomas Pynchon, etc. But when accusations based on 0.0001% of the data is presented as non-fiction, I have to draw the line. Just because something CAN BE a conspiracy does not mean it is. One last counter-argument. Consider that a mainstream journalist who could source, document and prove even one of these over-arching conspiracies was true, they'd become instantly famous -- think the fame Woodward and Bernstein attained for Watergate. And for a poor-paying, anonymous occupation that journalism proves for most of its practitioners, that boost in income and profile means something. For content and the generally confused way Coughlin locates, presents and analyzes data, I wold give this zero stars. But since the Good Reads algorithm does not count zero-stars, I'm giving this one-star. Disclaimer: I am reading this as background for a fictional character I am including in a novel. He's a good-guy who is effective even though his head is rife with Conspiracy Theories.

    This is a survey of many of the lunatic fringe groups and conspiracies around in the 90s. I could never believe that people believe some of the things they believe were it not for the Father of Lies (John 8:44). NOTE: I'm stingy with stars. For me 2 stars means a good book or a B. 3 stars means a very good book or a B+. 4 stars means an outstanding book or an A {only about 5% of the books I read merit 4 stars}. 5 stars means an all time favorite or an A+ {Only one of 400 or 500 books rates this!)
