The Making of #QAnon: A Crowdsourced #Conspiracy


source: https://www.bellingcat.com/news/americas/2021/01/07/the-making-of-qanon-a-crowdsourced-conspiracy/
Q was a skilled LARPer who fed the audience’s beliefs back to them; recycled ideas from earlier LARPs; and had help early on from a small but clever band of fans who spread word about the drops outside of #4chan.

Economic Globalization....
A fish served in a California restaurant was caught illegally on a Thai fishing vessel manned by slaves. A t-shirt bought in Germany was sewn in a Bangladeshi sweatshop, where workers labor in unsafe conditions for starvation wages. The rising consumption levels of India’s middle class are contributing to climate chaos thousands of miles away, while the hunger of Americans for consumer goods from China is exacerbating the Chinese air-pollution crisis...These are just a few of the many faces of the global economy.

Corporate-friendly think tanks and media outlets promote the idea that economic deregulation has made the world into one global village, defined by the free flow of ideas and technology, international collaboration, interdependence, and a worldwide sense of community.

But the reality falls far short of this ideal. Our global economic system is so large and complex – with producers and consumers, CEOs and workers, and cause and effect all far removed from each other – that ethical choices become almost impossible, and environmental and human rights disasters all but inevitable.

It can be challenging to make sense of the workings of a system that is so vast, out-of-control, and deeply ingrained into the fabric of our daily lives. But the global economy can be understood, by starting with its origins in European colonialism, moving through its key drivers and structural elements, and tracing its consequences for people and the planet.

Stop wasting time on stupid conspiracy theories and instead focus on the potential next pandemic and stop it early:

Ignore the conspiracy theories: scientists know Covid-19 wasn't created in a lab

Seems Facebook is down, but only if you're on BT as provider, all others seem fine. I wonder what the conspiracy theorists are going to make out of that?

I agree with this view. There is not one single big conspiracy, no one big master plan. Just a bunch of lucky chancers who happen to have spotted an opening and are doing their best to exploit it. Of course they to an extent work together and support each other (within limits, as long as it helps them personally. As soon as it doesn't they drop their support). So far fairly successful, but it is up to us to stop them.

I strongly suspect the Leave Facebook/Whatsapp/other groups are full of complaints about "Establishment conspiracies" and "Establishment revenge" because of course their heroes must by definition be innocent. That in particular Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson is actually part of the "establishment" probably hasn't crossed their mind.
