What is a Conspiracy Theory?

The audio portion of this video is by Perry DeAngelis, founder of the New England Skeptical Society and skeptical rogue. I was recently asked by an idiot on YouTube about my definition of conspiracy theorists, and realized that a segment of Perry's talk on the psychology of belief answers the question far better than I could ever hope to do in a 500 character comment. And so, in answer to that question, and in honor of the 1 year anniversary of Perry's passing, I created this video.
