Conspiracy theorists are more likely to be criminals and to approve of other forms of anti-social behaviour, study reveals for the first time
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-6752437/Conspiracy-theorists-likely-engage-petty-crime.html





'Those who subscribe to outrageous conspiracy theories are more likely to commit low-level crime, a new study has found.

Belief in such ideas - like the theory that Princess Diana was murdered by the British establishment - has often been associated with negative outcomes such as political disengagement, prejudice, and environmental inaction.

And now psychologists from the universities of Kent and Staffordshire suggest it can also make people more inclined to be involved in antisocial and 'unethical' acts.

These actions include petty crime, such as trying to claim for replacement items, refunds or compensation from a shop when they were not entitled to do so. A second study showed that those who were exposed to conspiracy theories during the experiment were immediately more accepting of low-level crime.

Professor Karen Douglas, of Kent's School of Psychology, said: 'People who believe in conspiracy theories - such as the theory that Princess Diana was murdered by the British establishment - are more likely to accept or engage in everyday criminal activity.'

'Our research has shown for the first time the role that conspiracy theories can play in determining an individual’s attitude to everyday crime.

'It demonstrates that people subscribing to the view that others have conspired might be more inclined toward unethical actions.'

Dr Dan Jolley, of Staffordshire University, said: ‘People believing in conspiracy theories are more likely to be accepting of everyday crime, while exposure to theories increases a feeling of anomie, which in turn predicts increased future everyday crime intentions.’'

From the comments & replies to the Daily Snail article.

"Dr Jolley and his colleagues work in a branch of research commissioned by the UK intelligence agencies' CREST (Centre for Research and Evidence on Security Threats). Launched in 2015 CREST focuses on behavioural and social science 'to counter and mitigate threats'. This particular research speculates a link between conspiracy theories and crime, but used very small groups and the findings are controversial. Not least because it seeks to stigmatise a very large number of decent people who have reasonable suspicions about the way mainstream media reports (or selectively ignores) world events."

Retired Serbian policeman Milorad Jankovic, allegedly expert on counterterrorism and mind control, discovered "the term   "conspiracy theory"  created at the Tavistock Institute in London in the 1950s and the CIA actively promoted him after the assassination of US President Kennedy ... "
