Surprisingly low key conclusion to all that precedes it. I was hoping for other conclusions, such as the way false narratives undermine evidence-based intellect, and in turn how the absence of an agreed-upon fact-based narrative necessitates ideologically-based assessments of political affairs.
Similarly, the rise of alternative fact discourse serves to create a sense of unity, in which Pizzagate, false flags and other non-events reinforce that identity.
In short, there’s more to be gained from madhattery; false narratives are a powerful positive force for the people who promote them.
While it’s polite to request that we refrain from these paranoid indulgences, they are the lingua franca of the day, and a counternarrative on the same level is just one bit of kit in the arsenal.
