conspiracyindividualismandholism (ThoughtStorms)

NaomChomsky thinks TheLeft shouldn't get involved with ConspiracyThinking. (http://www.zmag.org/parecon/conspiracy.htm))

For him it's MethodologicalIndividualism when you need InstitutionalAnalysis.

KarlPopper agrees in "The Conspiracy Theory of Society". Conspiracy Theories are the result of naivity, not understanding that macroscopic social behaviour can be an emergent or unintended consequence of an institution or collective, rather than always controlled by one agent.
