Problems with the Conspiratist World View

The conspiraitist world view---the belief that a unified cabal of elitists is manipulating world events, mind controlling the population, that we already live in a police state and a New World Order, etc. has become ubiquitous in global culture.

It is a perspective widely held in Europe, Central and South America, the Arab world, Australia, New Zealand and almost any place you can think of.

Yet for so many women and girls living in Islamic and Hindu communities, reality is far worse than what most westerners imagine. This eye-opening article is by Sean Moffitt of the Women's Assistance Fund

Reality Testing is Politically Incorrect!

Reality Testing in the Rabbit Hole

I think I just realized why I get into trouble with so many people----somehow I never realized what now seems obvious----reality testing is politically incorrect! Whether you are a religious fundamentalist or a New Age fundamentalist, on the right or on the left, if it feels emotionally satisfying, then it’s true.
