Dowbiggin finds support for his thesis in the positions of everyone from Quebec sovereigntists to gender feminists, and recovered memory survivors to members of the Solar Temple cult. He cites not just the paranoia of such clearly disturbed people as Timothy McVeigh and Marc Lepine, but of such culturally central figures as Bill Clinton, and Jerry Seinfeld. Paranoid thinking has become an intractable feature of North American life and can only become even more widespread in years to come.In Suspicious Minds, Dowbiggin offers some thoughts about how to recognize paranoid thinking, and how to counter it.
