People often criticize me for being "too certain". That my claims are too big and confident.

I take a more than average interest in conspiracy theories. Last May, I recorded a video on it that got quite popular, where I explored the archetypal dynamics of this fascinating phenomenon. In essence, I used my deep familiarity with the psyche and the collective unconscious to reject a lot of conspiracies as psychological projection.
As a student of the Collective Unconscious for more than a decade, cults are of great interest to me. They are laboratories of archetypal phenomena, where groups of people gratefully project their sovereignty onto a leader, principle or idea, until one day the whole thing blows up.
