Some of the information on paranoid schizophrenia is incorrect- it's actually less dangerous, and one of the easier schozophrenias to live with. You're repeating motions, and you are generally able to interact with people on the surface. Also, hallucinations are not as common amoung paranoid schozophrenics as other types. Should this be changed?

I'm no expert but I thought the subtypes of schizophrenia were based on which symptom(s) were most occuring. Meaning any person with a subtype of schizophrenia could be paranoid but paranoia is most prominent in paranoid schizophrenia.

this is true, but have you heard of any other subtype? I think it's just trying to say that paranoid schizophrenia is the most easily identified in works.

Is the second paragraph supposed to be a joke based on trying to sound paranoid?

"It's because Hollywood is attempting to cover up the other types of schizophrenia and propagandize the paranoid type to make everyone assume that paranoia is schizophrenia, causing people to dismiss all conspiracies as schizophrenic delusions so that everyone will dismiss cries that the Secret Cabal of the Brotherhood of the Cold Sun is taking over America with its black helicopters and its air-conditioners. Or else, Hollywood wants you to think that schizophrenics are founts of wisdom when it comes to conspiracy theories and must never be blown off simply because they're insane, even if what they think the Secret Cabal of the Brotherhood of the Cold Sun is doing would break the laws of physics. It depends on the studio and filmmaker."

If that paranoia wasn't deliberate, it's quite ironic.

Okay, reading on, it's clearly deliberate, but it's also kind of annoying and doesn't really add any humor. In my view, the fake paranoia is distracting from rather than adding to the content.

I think it's a rather clever way of explaining the topic. This wiki has a lot of things liek this.

Not as obtuse. Or as opaque. The description is very hard to follow.
