Pathological attraction to Conspiracy theories?


"I see this book as a journey and as a work of courage. Alfred Webre is my husband and soul mate. Through the time we've spent together I've watched him wage a battle, sometimes fierce and unsettling, with the mental illness that has plagued and enriched his life. At the depths of one of his depressions I suggested that he update one of his books, "The Age of Cataclysm" and perhaps write a book on his personal journey through manic-depression. My thinking at the time was he needs something to focus on and give him some purpose. That was in July shortly after "God" died and left Alfred both, devastated and exhilarated. He and I had been working together to come to grips with his attraction to cults and to move into a state of recovery. This was a task I felt well prepared for as I had done a great deal of "exit therapy" over the years with a variety of cult members."
It's easy to understand, after reading what Alfred's wife writes, that he needs badly to fight, with the professional help of his wife Geri, against his pathological " attraction to cults and move into a state of recovery".

The big question now:  Is it possible that Alfred “pathological attraction to cults” has become a pathological attraction to Conspiracy Theories?
If this is so, we can understand why Alfred Lambremont Webre is fascinated with frauds like Kevin Annett, and now Leuren Moret, a pseudo-scientist who planted the absurd idea about  Jesuits (“Society of Jesus”) originated in Babylon; These impossible jesuits are Satanic, so the Pope Francis I is satanic also. For Alfred Webre this absurd, irrational idea is the supreme  Truth.
It’s obvious that if Alfred believes Jesuits originated in Babylon he has serious problems. We all know that the Society of Jesus is  a Roman Catholic order of priests founded by St. Ignatius Loyola, St. Francis Xavier, and others in 1534, to do missionary work. The order was zealous in opposing the Reformation. Despite periodic persecution it has retained an important influence in Catholic thought and education.
The situation shows clearly one thing: Alfred Lambremont Webre needs help and needs it now, not tomorrow.
