Dr. Tjeerd Andringa of joins us to discuss a question James posed in the last subscriber video: are conspiracy theories falsifiable? We discuss Karl Popper’s famous “falsification” criteria for the demarcation of science and its potential applicability to geopolitical events. Dr. Andringa also details an approach for how to proceed in developing resilient hypotheses in an unstable, chaotic and non-closed system like global geopolitics.

    • Idk if it fits into what you’re looking for but I remember reading this book years ago and finding it very informative…

      “None dare call it conspiracy” by Gary Allen

      • Thank you; I’ll check it out

      “Which is a good book about a series of Conspiracy Theories that became Conspiracy Facts?”

      The Tuttle Twins Guide to True Conspiracies Hardback $15

      Contains 20 true conspiracies, full of details, in a very well told narrative with supporting documents.
      Written for very literate High School kids, or probably most adults.
      Don’t let the larger print or graphics fool ya.
      This would challenge most adults.

      I have two grandkids over 21. Gave it to them and other family members for Christmas. It was a real hit. My grandson’s girlfriend took it from him to read first.

      How I found out about it…
      I quickly found the link by going to this MAJOR REFERENCE LIST(S)

      At the link, you will not only see a list of 2023 #SolutionsWatch episodes, but also links to the lists of 2021 and 2022.
