    A child of a friend of mine died there.

    Take a guess how I feel about your question.

      From  Why People Believe in Conspiracies

      • patternicity, or a tendency to find meaningful patterns in random noise;
      • agenticity, or the bent to believe the world is controlled by invisible intentional agent;
      • confirmation bias, or the seeking and finding of confirmatory evidence for what we already believe;
      • hindsight bias, or tailoring after-the-fact explanations to what we already know happened.

       

      I want to add to the above mental illness.  Its got a huge prevalence and paranoia, delusions of persecution, and narcisim abound.

       

       

      Sandy Hook happened.  So did 9/11.  I wish "Deal with it" would suffice, but logic doesnt work in irrational thougt.  Its like telling a psych patient to just stop it.

       

       

       

      and from wikipedia....

       

      Academic work in conspiracy theories and conspiracism (a world view that places conspiracy theories centrally in the unfolding of history) presents a range of hypotheses as a basis of studying the genre. According to Berlet and Lyons, "Conspiracism is a particular narrative form of scapegoating that frames demonized enemies as part of a vast insidious plot against the common good, while it valorizes the scapegoater as a hero for sounding the alarm".[19]

      The historian Richard Hofstadter addressed the role of paranoia and conspiracism throughout American history in his essay The Paranoid Style in American Politics, published in 1964. Bernard Bailyn's classic The Ideological Origins of the American Revolution (1967) notes that a similar phenomenon could be found in America during the time preceding the American Revolution. Conspiracism labels people's attitudes as well as the type of conspiracy theories that are more global and historical in proportion.[20]

      The term "conspiracism" was popularized by academic Frank P. Mintz in the 1980s.[citation needed] According to Mintz, conspiracism denotes "belief in the primacy of conspiracies in the unfolding of history":[21]

      "Conspiracism serves the needs of diverse political and social groups in America and elsewhere. It identifies elites, blames them for economic and social catastrophes, and assumes that things will be better once popular action can remove them from positions of power. As such, conspiracy theories do not typify a particular epoch or ideology".[22]

      Throughout human history, political and economic leaders genuinely have been the cause of enormous amounts of death and misery, and they sometimes have engaged in conspiracies while at the same time promoting conspiracy theories about their targets. Hitler and Stalinwould be merely the 20th century's most prominent examples; there have been numerous others.[23] In some cases there have been claims dismissed as conspiracy theories that later proved to be true.[24][25] The idea that history itself is controlled by large long-standing conspiracies is rejected by historian Bruce Cumings:

      "But if conspiracies exist, they rarely move history; they make a difference at the margins from time to time, but with the unforeseen consequences of a logic outside the control of their authors: and this is what is wrong with 'conspiracy theory.' History is moved by the broad forces and large structures of human collectivities."[26]

      Justin Fox of Time Magazine gives a pragmatic justification of conspiracism. He says that Wall Street traders are among the most conspiracy-minded group of people, and ascribes this to the reality of some financial market conspiracies, and to the ability of conspiracy theories to provide necessary orientation in the market

        I don't know if there is anybody here warped enough to believe that this was a government setup...

         

        ...except maybe LongCrapper.

         

         

        Honestly, what does the government have to gain from shooting up a bunch of kids?

          But, it was unfortunately real. A sick sick kid.

        Not a conspiracy, but definitely exploited to the benefit of the left, and lapped up by the ignorant masses.

          Does it really matter who did it? The end result is that twenth kids and six adults were gunned down by one man named Adam Lanza. That is the one cold, hard fact about the case. Investigations are bringing up circumstances and speculations as to why Lanza committed his crime; they may be interesting, but they don't prove anything, conclusively.

          Was it "a government setup?" Probably not. Why on earth would "the government" have given some loose nut guns and ammunition, then send him into a school? If you say, "so they can ban guns," there are many better ways of doing it than the slaughter of innocents.
