← Conspiracies taking over where religion left off

I'm not particularly fond of G. K. Chesterton's "When people stop believing in God, they don't believe in nothing -- they believe in anything.", because it's simply an appeal to "belief in belief", but it's still probably true, though.

But of all dumb replacements for religion the worst one is not a conspiracy theory, but simply political correctness. Also known as 'The Matrix", for those who took some time to analyze the film by the same name. That one is the true mind killer. The consensus which thinks for you. And if people aren't simply dumb, they're either hysterical or dogmatic. There's no pill against that.
