There is a famous essay, written by Richd Hofstatder in 1964, called "The Paranoid Style in American Politics." I read it years ago, and it's very much worth reading.
I don't believe in impossible conspiracies. Many people do, but I'm not one of them. I consider these people to have something wrong with their brains. Three shooters on Kennedy. The moon landings shot on a stage. Remote-controlled airplanes on 9-11. Chemtrails. The Illuminati. The Masons. British bankers. Aliens. Gold fringe on the flag. Never heard that one? Look it up.
All childish paranoid nonsense. Childish because children blame their problems on other people. It absolves them of fixing things. "These incredibly brilliant but evil geniuses....we can do nothing!!! We are but puppets!! Helpless, hopeless, brainless, dickless! But even though we are helpless, we're smarter than them because we figured out their nefarious plans!!!"
This nonsense has existed for a long time. "The Nazis are going to take over the world! And the Japanese! Oops, sorry, I mean the Commies! Oops, sorry again! I mean the Japanese again! Oops, that's still not right! I mean Islam! Dammit, I'm still wrong! I mean the Chinese!"
How many people have died in wars because of this paranoid nonsense?
Since the Chinese are the du jour villains, I'm reading all kinds of nonsense. "They're smarter than us! Their IQs are higher! They're going to take over the world! It's the end of the West and the white man!!!" Blah, blah, blah.
Men don't get paranoid-hysterical and believe in fantasies. They deal with facts and they fix the problem. You can't fix problems when you're paranoid, hysterical, and blaming your problems are everyone but yourself.
Some Asians have slighter higher IQs? Whites have far more geniuses. Why did whites invent almost everything in the world and other races almost nothing? Why did liberty and the free market take root in the West only? Why are so many Asians uncreative, ant-like and conformist? Why are so many Asian males nerdy and/or effeminate? Why do their women almost always prefer white men over Asian men?
Of course, these questions are not PC. But men aren't supposed to be afraid to invent and discover.
I write about the Four Cardinal Virtues a lot. One of them is Courage. Not being afraid. Another is Prudence - choosing the right path out of many. That is, avoiding the PC path, not being paranoid-hysterical, not believing in impossible conspiracies everywhere you turn, not blaming all your problems on non-existent villains.
And standing up straight and not being pathetic. And not memorizing, imitating and conforming to nonsense.
"The paranoid spokesman, sees the fate of conspiracy in apocalyptic terms — he traffics in the birth and death of whole worlds, whole political orders, whole systems of human values. He is always manning the barricades of civilization... he does not see social conflict as something to be mediated and compromised, in the manner of the working politician. Since what is at stake is always a conflict between absolute good and absolute evil, what is necessary is not compromise but the will to fight things out to a finish. Since the enemy is thought of as being totally evil and totally unappeasable, he must be totally eliminated — if not from the world, at least from the theatre of operations to which the paranoid directs his attention. This demand for total triumph leads to the formulation of hopelessly unrealistic goals, and since these goals are not even remotely attainable, failure constantly heightens the paranoid’s sense of frustration. Even partial success leaves him with the same feeling of powerlessness with which he began, and this in turn only strengthens his awareness of the vast and terrifying quality of the enemy he opposes." - Richard Hofstatder
