Extreme Paranoia Mindset

The paranoid notion of a conspiracy as responsible for all social ills is characteristic of extreme right-wing ideologies (Note: that does not mean there aren’t any conspiracies. Just because they can call me paranoid, doesn’t mean they are not after me).
In a paranoid state, everything means something, and every random event means something. Your mindset becomes grandiose … You believe in the essential BIG-ness of things. Everything happens on a grand scale. You believe that there is a root of all power. Nothing is a coincidence. There is no chaos. Everything makes sense. If only you can connect enough of the threads, you will be able to see clearly, through the veil of lies put out by some enormous organisation ~ the government, the CIA, the Gold Owners, the Alpha Complex … you will pierce through the lies and come close to the actual root of all power!
Extreme Paranoia Roleplaying game
The games are set in Alpha Complex, an immense and futuristic domed or underground city controlled by The Computer. The Computer runs everything within Alpha Complex. The Computer sees everything within Alpha Complex ~ at least, that’s what It would like you to believe. Everybody within Alpha Complex works for The Computer, serves The Computer, protects The Computer and if need be, dies for The Computer. The Computer has made happiness mandatory. Failure to be happy is punishable by execution.
STAY ALERT; TRUST NO ONE; KEEP YOUR LASER HANDY!
