Sander van der Linden, Guy Walters
Sunday 2nd July 10:30 (60 Min)
Hitler survived the war, the moon landing was faked, Covid19 vaccinations contain micro trackers to control us and the world is governed by a group of Satanic, cannibalistic, paedophiles. Don’t believe it? Hundreds of millions of people do, even when the over whelming empirical evidence is that these theories are simply not true. Why? Social psychologist Sander van der Linden and historian Guy Walters will examine why so many people are willing to believe conspiracy theories.
