‘More Dangerous And More Widespread’: Conspiracy Theories Spread Faster Than Ever

NPR recently posted this article on how conspiracy theories are becoming faster and wider than ever. Quoting the article, bogus conspiracy theories have always been around. Only now, experts say they’re spreading faster and wider than ever before – accelerated by social media, various politicians and beliefs, and weaponized in a way not seen before in history.

“It has been getting worse,” says Kathryn Olmsted, a professor of history at the University of California, Davis, and the author of the book, Real Enemies: Conspiracy Theories and American Democracy, World War I to 9/11. “Conspiracy theories have become more dangerous and more widespread, just even in the last 10 years.”

These hurt families and individuals and it MUST STOP.
