This article primarily focuses on the assassination of Theo Van Gogh and delves into the psychological aspects surrounding conspiracy theories, particularly in relation to the motivations and mindset of individuals involved. It discusses various perspectives, including the paranoid style in conspiracy theories, evolutionary psychology perspective, and social psychology perspective. The paper examines the case of Mohammed Bouyeri, the Dutch-Moroccan individual who confessed to the killing of Theo Van Gogh and explores factors such as humiliation, exclusion, and radicalisation that may have influenced his actions. Additionally, it discusses concepts like paternity, agency, and paranoid gestalt in the context of conspiracy theories and extremist ideologies.
