Why are rightists so fond of conspiracy theories?
It seems conspiranoia is purely a rightist thing.

>Why are rightists so fond of conspiracy theories?
They aren't into theories, they like conspiracy entertainment.

But generally there are a lot of conspiracies in reality:
Capitalists conspire to uphold their class interests at the expense of the workers.
The biggest capitalists even conspire to overthrow the governments of countries when that is profitable.
There is a conspiracy to imprison Julian Assange despite his innocence having been proven.
and so on and so on

Actual conspiracies aren't about aliens and secret societies summoning demons , most of it is very boring "evil".

Capitalism fails so hard, so obviously that even reactionaries can't ignore it. They refused to read Marxist theory that makes sense of all this, so they instead latch onto an idealised fantasy version of capitalism and make up all kinds of nonsensical conspiracy fanfictions to defend this "real capitalism". It's a coping mechanism for them to deal with the ever growing cognitive dissonance between their ideal and the decaying material reality.

 No.1578

They want explanations of why the world is like this, but they look in the wrong places and end up finding some reactionary, conspiracy theories since big words just fly over their heads.

Alternatively, something to do with using religion as cope.

 No.1584

they provide an absolutist, systematic worldview that implies and mystifies their rightist notions and can be used to dismiss and attack any group of people without making it seem political
i think most ppl catch on to the fact that they're dishonest right wingers, though

 No.1585

>>1584

 No.1703
