The Internet has given those of us who study Conspiracy Theory subjects
/enormous/ resources - in effect, a better reference library than could
be assembled in a decade at our fingertips nearly free of charge, along
with Yuge searchable archives of primary source materials and
scientific/technical references.

But alas:  The Internet gives the folks who grind out disinformation for
the Conspiracy Beliefs market, including both independent operators and
subsidized shops like Infowars, a massive new audience of gullible

Those suckers are really just normal people who are desperate to make
sense of the world around them but don't have any relevant information
or a clue where to start.  In today's market, what I call real
Conspiracy Theory has to compete for eyeballs with Conspiracy Belief
narratives that present e-z explanations and promise quick fix solutions
to intolerable large scale problems ("just tell us who to hate and
kill").  Once a person becomes a motivated True Believer, it usually
sticks for a lifetime.
