Marxism, Fascism and conspiracy theories have in common that they are linear. For them everything is planned and there is no room for random events and individual human behaviour. The same (evil) planning is behind everything. Critical doubt or self-reflection is not necessary. No, they have discovered the truth, the key to unlock the mystery. The scary thing about Schocken's conspiracy polemic is that it sounds like a draft for the The Protocols of the Elders of Gush Emunim. Replace Gush Emunim with "the Jews" and you have the commonplace diatribe against Jews that has been used to justify antisemitism since the late nineteenth century. Of course, conspiracy theories are not only a problem for Jews. Islamophobia is also grounded in a conspiracy theory.
