We were ALL conspiracy theorists once

    Is it years of borg training that makes people vulnerable to this kind of thinking, or does the borg attract people with this sort of view?

    Chicken or egg? I think it's a mix of both.

    Slimboyfat - From your comments on the previous thread

    As someone who is coming to terms with no longer believing as a Jehovah's Witness, I can identify with the "unbearable freedom" of a world not made coherent by some outside organizing force outside my control. For some who leave the Witnesses I get the feeling that the strain is too great, and the desire for meaning so powerful that they are inclined toward accepting conspiracy theories almost as a substitute for Jehovah.

    That's a reasonable point. I agree with your comment that it should give us pause before we mock others. How quickly we forget where we came from, everybody's journey is different.
