This is a question of great interest to me due in large part to current events. As many of you may know, this tumultuous period in our lives, also known as the COVID-2019 pandemic, has been filled to the brim with weird people believing in even weirder things. A global pandemic that has killed over 2.36 million people across the world? Fake. A safe and secure election was actually rigged by demon worshipping pedophiles. True. Donald Trump is actually a servant of God that is fighting all the injustice in the United States of America. Absolutely factual. Terrifyingly, all of these ridiculous and utterly peculiar statements and ideas have gained quite large followings all over the world, particularly in the United States. With little to no proof to support any of the claims, and even the rare piece of “evidence” being incredibly shaky at best, people should have no real reason to believe them, right? You would think so, but somehow these strange ideas have infiltrated the brains of many and I plan on figuring out why.
