Tro på konspirationsteorier i Sverige och andra länder
Postat: sön 03 mar 2019, 20:38
Det var ju glädjande att Sverige var det land vars invånare var minst benäget att tro på konspirationsteorier av de undersökta länderna (tron på konspirationsteorier var mest utbredd i Ungern). Men ändå, drygt hälften av landets invånare tror på minst en konspirationsteori...From aliens to immigration, international study finds most believe a conspiracy theory
In the largest ever academic study into belief in conspiracy theories, a team from the University of Cambridge polled people in nine countries to reveal how mainstream certain fringe conspiratorial views have become in recent years.
The research surveyed over 11,000 adults across the US, Britain, Poland, Italy, France, Germany, Portugal, Sweden, and Hungary. Subjects were asked about their beliefs across 10 different conspiracy theories, including whether alien contact with humans is being covered up by the government or climate change is a hoax.
Strikingly, over half of all respondents believed in at least one conspiracy theory presented to them. Sweden was the most skeptical country with 48 percent of people disbelieving every conspiracy presented, while Hungary was filled with the most believers with only 15 percent of people rejecting every conspiracy. In the United States only 36 percent of respondents disbelieved every theory proposed.
