1st May – Conspiracy Theories

This fascinating book written in plain English by a philosopher at the University of Warwick states that conspiracy theories need to be understood first and foremost in political terms and that the intellectual character of conspiracy theorists is a side issue. Ethical considerations are important too.

This book is about the politics of conspiracy theories and how they are basically a form of propaganda. The response to these theories needs to be political too. Conspiracy theorists are never wrong of course and conveniently ignore or dispute all facts and rebuttals that don’t fit in with their opinion.

This is another fascinating book from Polity Books.

I was born in Leicester. I attended school in Yorkshire and University in Liverpool. I have been to 93 countries and territories including The Balkans and Armenia in 2015, France and Slovakia in 2016, and some of the Greek Islands in 2017. My sense of humour is distilled from The Goons, Monty Python, Fawlty Towers, and Midsomer Murders. I love being creative in my writing and I love writing about travelling. My next books are a travel book about Greece and a novel inspired by Brexit.
