People who overestimate their political knowledge tend to believe conspiracy theories

Posting just because I'll be amused to watch the discussion. Not that there's anyone here this would apply to.

People who overestimate their political knowledge are more likely to believe conspiracy theories
By ERIC W. DOLAN June 11, 2018

People who overestimate their understanding of political issues are more likely to believe conspiracy theories, according to new research that appears in the European Journal for Social Psychology.

“Conspiracy theories about government actors and institutions are widespread across the political ideological spectrum,” remarked study author Joseph A. Vitriol, a postdoctoral research associate at Lehigh University. “These beliefs attribute outsized influence to hidden actors or clandestine groups who are perceived as the root cause of an important world event, action, or outcome.”

“Because conspiracy beliefs often preserve discredited assumptions or serve as a basis for dismissing information that challenges one’s worldview, they are often difficult to correct (as is true for many political misperceptions) and can therefore undermine the ability for citizens to effectively and ethically engage in the political process.”

“Indeed, these beliefs are not constrained to the politically disengaged or the uninformed. Instead, conspiracy theories are commonly endorsed and propagated by actors at the highest levels of political power and, as a result, are consequential for public policy,” Vitriol said.

“In short, conspiracy beliefs are important influences on citizens’ political judgment and behavior. This can undermine the ability of elected officials to address problems in society with evidence-based public policy and governance. By investigating the psychological underpinning of conspiracy beliefs, we are better able to understand how these beliefs form and spread. We are also better able to identify strategies for informing or educating the public and combating the influence of false and fabricated information on political psychology and behavior.”

Eh... I dunno if Turkey is a great example.

The secularists political groups that moved them away from theocracy committed multiple genocides against non muslims under the guise of nationalism and homogenized the society.

I certainly hope that's not what would have happened.

Is that recent? I know that it's not the best example. And that their current leader is pretty brutal. But there's not a decent regime in the area. When Israel, Jordan, Kuwait and Qatar are the best that your region has to offer...

Well, recent relative to what?

Turkey is certainly more moderate and advanced than most of the area.. but goddamn. It's still pretty bad and heading in the wrong direction right now.

I don't want to make a joke about the special olympics gold medal, but I'm failing to find another analogy.

It's probably naive to think Iran could have done better, even if you kept the clerics out of the leader chairs. People in the middle east suck at representative governments. That's how we ended up with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt after the Arab Spring. I never thought I'd believe a military coup overthrowing an elected government was a GOOD thing.

You put the anal probe up your own ass, it wasn't the aliens. Talk to your psychiatrist.

The Turkey that you were describing. I was wondering if it's been about the same for some time now, or if it's become better, or if it's gotten worse

It got better, and is currently in decline thanks to another shitty wanna-be-dictator.

I think it's safe to say Obama was dead ****ing wrong about Erdogan.
