Off the Edge: Flat Earthers, Conspiracy Culture, and Why People Will Believe Anything (MP3 CD)
Email or call for price.
An in-depth look at one of the most popular conspiracy theories of all time and its birth, almost demise, and reinvention. The creation of YouTube and the unchecked information available led to people falling for absurdly incorrect views of our place in the universe. The rise of far right extremism and QAnon melded with Flat Earthers and created a dangerous concoction of misinformation. Weill is fascinated and pretty respectful of Flat Earthers even if completely disagreeing with them. A sometimes shocking read but engaging and, dare I say it, informative.— Jesse
