“I’m skeptical about low-status conspiracy theories but not about the unquestionable dogmas of my time” = “I’m not a skeptic.”
A certain amount of skepticism is healthy. But if you are much more skeptical about aliens, ghosts, HCQ, capitalism, and organized religion than you are about lockdowns, hate hoaxes, democracy, “social justice,” and the like, then you are not a skeptic at all but a conformist acolyte of the Blue Establishment. Selective skepticism is not real skepticism.
(And yes, Boomer conservatives peddling conspiracy theories should also be more skeptical. But the most dangerous “conspiracy theories” are the ones that are Establishment-approved.)
