  1. So basically the same techniques used to manufacture consent are also the same that produce conspiracists. Interesting, the only difference being those who believe in conspiracies are bombarded with meta-analytic explanations for their fallacious thinking. Also, the moon landing was fake, that’s probably another reason for the rather emotionally-invested war to nip it in the bud.
