    "reverse vampires" theory when I see Beck's board.

    Bart: So finally, we're all in agreement about what's going on with
    the adults. Milhouse?
    Milhouse: Ahem. OK, here's what we've got: the
    Rand Corporation, in conjunction with the saucer people --
    Bart: Thank you.
    Milhouse: under the supervision of the reverse vampires --
    Lisa: [sighs]
    Milhouse: are forcing our parents to go to bed early in a fiendish
    plot to eliminate the meal of dinner. We're
    through the looking glass, here, people...

    This is the logical conclusion reached by Millhouse and Bart to explain their parents behaviour after Grandpa develops and sells a magical elixer that boosts the sex drive of Springfield's adults in the episode Grandpa vs. Sexual Inadequacy.

    The sad truth is that the folks who resort to this type of paranoid/delusional reasoning are not wrong in that there are complex and intentionally obscured motivations behind a lot of legislative actions but they have no grasp of the means to actually figure out what they are. They sense something is "off" but can't apply critical thinking to determine what it is or how to combat it effectively. Beck provides easy "answers".
