Conspiracy theories

I keep getting messages from my friends that I can only describe as "paranoid delusions."   The latest is from my friend who claims that Freemasonry is a Lucifer worshiping cult that wants to destroy mankind.

The problem as I see it is that there are substantial numbers of people, more than I ever expected, who believe in conspiracy theories.  This seems to have been made worse by the pandemic.  The conspiracy theorists are almost always anti-vaxxers. 

Maybe it is human nature to need an enemy.  If people don't have somebody to hate, then they will make one up.
