conspiracy, theory, prophecy fails, Leon Festinger, backfire effect

A conspiracy theorist could be accused of wearing a tinfoil hat. If so, you should credit Aldous Huxley's brother, Julian, for popularising the concept in his 1926 short tale, The Tissue-Culture King. In it, Huxley's characters realize that metal is excellent at preventing telepathy efforts and make "metal foil hats" for themselves.
