1. Conspiracy and Democracy (Winter 2014) [Lobster #68 (Winter 2014) (free)] [Free Issue]
... The Conspiracy and Democracy Project Robin Ramsay W ith a grant from the Leverhulme Trust, the Conspiracy and Democracy Project began in January 2013 at Cambridge University, with some academics at the helm.1 The title of the project, Conspiracy and Democracy, might suggest that it is going to deal with the issue of how conspiracy as a practice undermines or impacts upon democracy. It might, for example, examine all the state conspiracies which now exist within this society; and since the armed forces, police, security and intelligence services (and the big corporations) are almost entirely unaccountable, such research would be entirely apt. It would be only a slight exaggeration to say that the ...

(c) www.lobster-magazine.co.uk (Issue 19) May 1990 Last| Contents| Next Issue 19 Conspiracy, Conspiracy Theories and Conspiracy Research Robin Ramsay 'The unexpected and dramatic death of the famous, whether statesmen like John F Kennedy, or media stars like Marilyn Monroe, invariably give rise to conspiracy theories.' Thus Cambridge historian, Christopher Andrew, during his disgraceful hatchet job on Hugh Thomas' books about Rudolph Hess for BBC2 's Timewatch series. (Discussed in Lobster 20) Like most of his comments on that programme, this just isn't true. Most media stars who die 'unexpectedly and dramatically' do so without conspiracy theories. Kenneth Anger's Hollywood Babylon is a long catalogue of ...

... Oh, conspiracy! Robin Ramsay The Guardian has been having an attack of conspiracy theory anxiety. First there was the piece on 18 December by Natalie Nougayrède, the former diplomatic correspondent and later editor of Le Monde, 'The conspiracy theories of extreme right and far left threaten democracy '.1 The subhead, expressing her thesis, was this: 'In a complex, changing world both peddle a simple us-and-them narrative. The results are calamitous'. Here's a sample of her thinking. 'Part of the appeal of conspiracy theories is their simplicity. In a complex, changing world, it is tempting to reduce multifaceted issues to the us-and-them narrative. It is a vision that meets little contradiction ...

... (c) www.lobster-magazine.co.uk (Issue 29) June 1995 Last| Contents| Next Issue 29 'Conspiracy Theories' and Clandestine Politics Jeffrey M. Bale See note(1) Very few notions generate as much intellectual resistance, hostility, and derision within academic circles as a belief in the historical importance or efficacy of political conspiracies. Even when this belief is expressed in a very cautious manner, limited to specific and restricted contexts, supported by reliable evidence, and hedged about with all sort of qualifications, it still manages to transcend the boundaries of acceptable discourse and violate unspoken academic taboos. The idea that particular groups of people meet together secretly or in private to plan various courses ...

5. The Big C: Further notes on 'conspiracy' [Lobster #24 (Dec 1992)]
... (c) www.lobster-magazine.co.uk (Issue 24) December 1992 Last| Contents| Next Issue 24 The Big C: Further notes on 'conspiracy'Definitions? Or Whoops! A paradigm An American magazine called Mondo 2000 ran an amusing piece called 'The Conspiracy Top Ten'. In it 'Zarkov' offered this definition: 'Conspiracies may be better understood as organizations pursuing their own ends, who desire no publicity as to their true objectives and methods.' Which sounds interesting at first then dissolves into mush. This was in the preface to an interview with Jonathan Vankin, author of what sounds like a kind of compendium of conspiracies and conspiracy theories, Conspiracies, Cover-ups and Crimes: Political ...

6. Behind right-wing conspiracy theories [Lobster #8 (Jun 1985)]
... (c) www.lobster-magazine.co.uk (Issue 8) June 1985 Last| Contents| Next Issue 8 Behind right-wing conspiracy theories Part 1 The world of ultra-right conspiracy theory is of interest to researchers into clandestinism for 3 reasons. First, because critics of research into clandestinism frequently attempt to bracket it together with ultra-right believers in The Protocols of Zion and similar fantasies.(1 ); secondly because the ultra-rightists, in the last decade, have been showing an interest in some bodies of real interest to researchers, such as the Council on Foreign Relations; and, thirdly, because some versions of ultra-right conspiracy theory have been not without influence in intelligence and government circles. When one attempts ...

... (c) www.lobster-magazine.co.uk (Issue 30) December 1995 Last| Contents| Next Issue 30 Conspiracy theories are go! Will the Illuminati arrive in black helicopters or Nazi-designed UFO's? We are currently awash in dotty conspiracy theories. This is an interesting phenomenon even if the content of most of them is almost totally unreliable- at best. Some of this is the spin-off from the Oklahoma bombing and the media's discovery of the militias. Only in America would the crazy conspiracy theorists be armed to the teeth and- it is said- actually planning to fight the Illuminati! Any minute now there will anti-Illuminati terrorism in the USA; the FBI will announce the creation of an Illuminati ...

It starts in 2330 BC but the first 2007 years take up only 84 pages. The content is mostly Anglo-American, especially after WW2. It is done chronologically, so you get odd sequences of subjects: Gehlen, Roswell, Operation Paperclip, the murder of Ghandi; and Watergate, Littlejohn, Kincora, Allende; and AIDS conspiracy, Iran-Contra conspiracy, Hilda Murrel, Get Scargill, assassination of Mrs Ghandi. And ...

He's right: we all have a kind of plausibility threshold, beyond which a proposition about the world has to get before our brains will take it seriously. And thus, he tells us, about the moon theory: 'Given the imbalance in probabilities I was ...
