    A compendium of the kind of conspiracy thinking that makes up the political landscape of 2019 It d be laughable that patently idiotic ideas like QAnon or birtherism or Pizzagate need to be addressed at all, but the fact that they re symptoms of a larger trend in American politics is frightening One you can dedicate a book to, even so The book does a fine job of cataloguing these failures of thought and reason, and provides some interesting historical examples worth noting like turn of the century progressivism as another example of party hostile populism, except it had y know reason involved The authors don t dance around the obvious that the vast majority of the new conspiracism comes from the right, due in no small part to the current occupant of the White House but they re quick to point out this...

    Another book commenting on the right wing bubble of steel and the conspiracism that built and maintains it Conspiracism is even lazier than conspiracy theories At least for a conspiracy theorist is the search for evidence to confirm the theory Conspiracism merely asserts a conspiracy to bolster a cognitive bias or ideological commitment with no evidence It is lazy and dangerous it creates a bubble of steel around one s worldview where all disconfirming evidence is dismissed by the assertion of a conspiracy against one s favorite belief It assaults democracy in that no evidence or info can change opinions This has the dynamic of a cult where nothing from the outside can change the member s beliefs This is the state of the right and the Republican party at the moment A major part of our institutions are under the sway of an anti democrati...

    Underwhelming An extremely centrist take, and some of the arguments rely on a superficial approach to work The Pizzagate theory was ludicrous, but it had some substance, mangled and misunderstood and misplaced as it ...

    A revealing and depressing read The authors look at the rise of a new kind of conspiracism in the age of Trump one that abetted his rise to power and which he uses to solidify and maintain and potentially expand his power It has all the classic hallmarks of conspiracy theory paranoia, scapegoating, outrageous accusations, etc but without the theory There s nothing to debunk because facts don t matter and don t enter into it It s all about A lot of people say or I ve heard or I m only asking questions And when something is proven false e.g when Trump retweets a faked video it doesn t matter at all His paid flunky says The video may be fake but the threat is real Most of the book is devoted to showing how this kind of conspiracism has spread, and how complicit both right wing media and the Republican party are How can we combat it The authors say the two most important activities are sp...

    A short book and to the point about the plague of conspiracist thinking that infects the modern digitally connecte world Among my many objections to the vile Donald Trump is his conspiracism and attacks on the press and on reality itself with his constant gas lighting This is exactly what the authors of this book address the deliberate poisoning of truth with lies by this disgusting man and especially the damage it does to democratic societies which fundamentally run on trust and ...

    Read the page proofs A must read analysis of the new conspiracism as epitomized by Trump s bald assertions fake news rigged elections doctored inaguration photos sex ring pizzeria birtherism etc etc etc

  7. Matt Rusteika says:

    The original thoughts in this book wouldn t amount to a whole Atlantic article Repetitive, thin analysis that anybody who has lived through the past few years in America would have been able to do.

  8. Natalie Dowzicky says:

    The book was interesting but it largely ignored that in previous generations we did have those who were speaking truth to conspiracy The authors wrote as if that had not existed.
