A recent report from the New York Post claims people who believe in conspiracy theories are more likely to commit crimes. The problem with the headline and the opening few lines of the story itself (which is often all people will read before drawing conclusions and moving on to the next story) is that it’s completely misleading.
The example they use for “crimes” are that people who believe in conspiracy theories are less likely to frown on those who return items to stores that should not have been returned. Seriously.
They then go on to the “real” crime, the one that society frowns upon the most in the modern era. Conspiracy theorists are much more likely to engage in anti-social behavior. This is a thing because in today’s America, being anti-social means terrible, horrible, no good things, right?

If being a conspiracy theorist or anti-social makes someone a criminal, someone better come lock me up. I might not subscribe to the idea the moon landings were faked, but that doesn’t mean I’m not cautious about the realities of the world.
