    So if you question anything your government tells you you must be a criminal scratch




    Those who subscribe to outrageous conspiracy theories are more likely to commit low-level crime, a new study has found.
    Belief in such ideas - like the theory that Princess Diana was murdered by the British establishment - has often been associated with negative outcomes such as political disengagement, prejudice, and environmental inaction.
    And now psychologists from the universities of Kent and Staffordshire suggest it can also make people more inclined to be involved in antisocial and 'unethical' acts.


    WHAT ARE SOME OF THE MOST POPULAR CONSPIRACY THEORIES?

    Researchers say some of the most commonly held beliefs include:


    The Apollo moon landing was staged
    The CIA killed JFK. 9/11 was a plot by the U.S. government to justify a war in the Middle East
    President Barack Obama was not a natural born citizen
    The massacre at Sandy Hook elementary school was staged as a pretense for increased gun control
    The 'deep state' is trying to destroy Donald Trump's presidency
