Why do we believe in illuminati, aliens, lizard-human hybrids, and invisible microchips, whilst ignoring investigative reporting and shareholder reports? The answers to this are complex, but part of it is that we love a great story. And not only do we love stories, we also love having the chance to be part of co-creating that story as we make sense of our circumstances and express our political anger. As collective stories, conspiracy theories are also an important window into their adherents' collective political imagination, and as times change, these stories can teach us valuable lessons about the change to that imagination.
