Abstract:

The paper argues that the form of political thinking that commonly goes by name of conspiracy theory is, like its milder cousin conspiracy thinking, deeply informed by an overly voluntaristic understanding of power that I call command center thinking. The paper goes on to claim that these three modes of thought stand, both as they operate together and taken separately, as major sources of disagreement failure and thus as obstacles to deliberative democracy.
