London Fortean Society: Conspiracy Theory and Culture

Conspiracy Theory states that nothing is how it is reported, that everything you know is wrong and sinister forces are controlling everything for their own, dark motivations. Opposing this dark pantomime are the lone hero truth tellers, from David Icke to Donald Trump to Alex Jones to the gnomic, anonymous Q.

Conspiracy thought has moved to the centre of society and has brought with it violence and terror and a removal of faith in conventional media and law. The concept of truth has been eroded. Conway Hall and the London Fortean Society present a deep dive into conspiracy theory, what it is, what it means, why it is believed and what is the harm caused by it? And how do we move on from this seductive, destructive mindset?

Join us and James Ball, Professor Chris FrenchBrent Lee and Jonn Elledge for a deep dive into conspiracy theory and culture. The history, the people and the dangers of a conspiracy mindset.
