No wonder the universities are short of cash when they're wasting money funding 'studies' like this! What a load of old .....

And before this I'll bet the meeting went something like this: we need to criminalize free speech. Lets just call anybody who forms thier own opinions rather than thinking what they are told to a bad person. Calling them crazy discredits them, but people are still talking. We need to fully categorize anybody whos opinion differs into a criminal class.
This sounds like a harmless study but it is a dangerous line of progression when they have skipped to classifying people based on the popularity of thier beliefs.

Here's an idea: stop trying to alienate people based on thier race, occupation and beliefs and treat us all like equals. See how fast people lose thier mistrust when they are not watching thier peers be routinely murdered by police.

Everyone breaks at least one law everyday. Roll through that stop sign?  Carelessly through a cig butt on the ground?  It’s not so much that a persons beliefs makes them more likely to break laws, it’s more a consequence of our lawmakers continually creating new laws and making more criminals.  Just my opinion of course.

Many of the hard core conspiracy people feel they are doing the rest of use a service by trying to expose the lies.  Therefore the ends justify the means.

"People who believe in conspiracy theories might be more likely to engage in petty crime, and no, this is not a conspiracy."

 

From a scientific perspective, I am skeptic about this statement.

I do think people that readily default to thinking that others are up to no good, are guided to some extent by the template of their own natures, and imagine others must be as "bent" as they are. After all, it is much easier to justify dishonesty to yourself, if others are thought to be no better. You are just "going with the flow", "what goes around, comes around".

Yeah, because most people who value education, knowledge, art, culture, logic, research, evidence, etc. are liberal.

And most pointless political comments come from Conservatives.

I'm pretty sure that's a conspiracy, I'd like a name of any university that isn't.

Knowledge, evidence, logic? Aren't you the ones that believe in a rape epidemic within universities?

This doesn't really surprise me, unfortunately. It is the uneducated that commit most crimes, as well as who believe stupid conspiracy drivel. Lack of education is likely the root cause of both behaviours.
