New Zealand has had a number of people break quarantine because they were swayed by these videos. If the NZ has an outbreak and goes back into lockdown, good money is on it being related to 5g/covid conspiracy Facebook stuff.

what keeps conspiracy theories going is that when 5% of them are either proven true to a point or at least have a grain of truth in them, it feeds the people who heard them into thinking the other conspiracy theories must be true as well. I blame the U.S government for having a few secret programs that when they got declassified proved some conspiracy theorists right, you prove one or two idiots right and suddenly every idiot thinks they are right as well.

These theories are very appealing in countries with a lot of uneducated people who prefer to believe in fairy tales rather than accept the reality, see also religion, fanaticism.

It's interesting that experts are basically suggesting the Socratic method to successfully engage with conspiracy theorists. Almost like philosophy should be part of public education curricula everywhere.

Well, besides all the facts you have provided, you have also proved one thing I believe to be true....it takes a Canadian (Mr. Trebek) and Katheryn O'Hara or even yourself, who could still be termed a Brit (don't tell the Americans who are watching) to provide the TRUTH and explain in teenie tiny words so even the southerners will understand that the Earth is not flat, Health Care should universal as part of the social services you pay for with your taxes, and lastly that the Corona Virus is NOT a fucking joke!!!!! I am also Canadian and we are pretty level headed, fairly well educated and have free healthcare since WWII, so we started at the drop of the hat in early March or (even earlier) to isolate every single one of our family members and keep them home. Our total death count, coast to coast inclusive, is just barely over 8900 people and unfortunately many of those were in nursing homes. Last week one person flew into New Brunswick from somewhere in the USA and he failed to isolate himself. Within 24 hours he was brought in by the police, his family isolated and a special team of investigators tracked down every person he might have gotten within 6 feet of since he came into the province. Fortunately HE tested Negative. Oh, our death toll in our province is a total of TWO - I mean 2. One last note - on Thursday May 17th I started feeling awful and by the middle of the night I was terribly ill. My symptoms matched 5 of the 8 COVID-19 symptoms. I called in Friday morning and was scheduled for a test at a tent drive through at 1:30 PM the same day. I got there a minute or two early, drove in, answered a few questions and got swabbed (it does NOT have to be shoved 1/2 way through your nasal passages for the love of God) and was gone - total time I was there - 9 minutes. Around 6 PM I started checking the website where individual secure results are put for each patient. At 9:52 PM I found the results posted, which was NEGATIVE. I was sick for nearly 5 weeks and still have no clue what caused it....I presume some sort of bug bit me outdoors mowing the lawn??? Anyway,, the total time from calling in to having the test to getting the results was just under 12 hours in total. There is simply NO reason these tests can't be done faster and with a lot less complicated bullshit in the US as well. The test apparatus is NOT complicated OR expensive. It is simply two swabs in their individual tubes, one swab does the rear of your palette and the second swab on the back of your nasal passage...gently in both cases. They are after a fucking microscopic particle, not a marble you shoved up into the back of your throat or stuck in your nose. Hell, the size of that swab, which is just a taller version of a Q-Tip, (even Trump could see the difference) it could hold about 5000 virus invaders...lol. Anyway, I believe you are an American now so get your ass in, get registered as a voter and mail in a vote - or go to the voting station and yell at everyone you see on the way to get the hell in to vote Trump OUT>>>>>>>>. Otherwise you will have a dictator for life, with Don Jr. as the heir apparent (just like north Korea) if you don't stop it NOW. That would be a true catastrophe and getting THAT infection out might take a lot of hydrochloride...or bleach. Avoid the hurricane headed your way tomorrow I believe. Stay safe everyone.

These growing conspiracies are a symptom of our incredibly unhealthy lives. Our connection to nature is broken by the way we have built society. (Not all people of course, and it's important to acknowledge that there are societies that have not progressed like our dumpster fire society)

The problem comes when the only "trustworthy news" comes from q-anon. None of these messages will help, because they're all touting the "mainstream agenda". It's *so* exhausting to try and fend off their arguments. In the words of Tim Minchin, they are like snipers. Using bullocks for ammunition. (The conspiracy theorists, not the lovely people trying to help!)

FUN FACT: the moon landing in the video was faked... if you watch that whole video of the shuttle landing, you can see that it was filmed beforehand for broadcast by CBS (or some other well-trusted channel, I forget) news. It’s right along the bottom: “pre-recorded by CBS studios”, they’re not exactly trying hide it. They needed footage for the TV broadcast; that conspiracy is just lazy. I mean, what, did you think they’d put camera crews on the moon? It was hard enough sending the astronauts lmao

Until FaceBook gets the expertise, they should just let users tag a post they believe is untrue, then show other users what percentage of people who have viewed the post believe it to be untrue. That, at least, might urge people to think more critically about the post... even if it turned out to have been true.

I wish when giving the example of Bayer they had mentioned that Bayer actually did sell tainted drugs, just not in the US market. They dumped them in the South American market after the FDA in the US deemed those drugs dangerous. I believe the drugs were for treating blood pressure. This has been reported by several independent local journalists and smaller media, some videos are still on YouTube today. Generic drugs always seem like better deals anyway. It's not a conspiracy theory that big corporations shit on poor people, would have been nice to make it clear at that point.

learning conspiracy theories gives you the same feeling as a scientific discovery... you know without all the education, experience, hard work, colleagues that check your work, and reality. People simply feel smarter knowing a new conspiracy theory!

Honestly saying China created the virus sounds like a legit conspiracy. Being able to force there citizen to stay in home for 2 to 3 weeks and being a communist government gives it a LARGE economical advantage in this crysis. They can force people home and get that virus taken care off in a month. Being a democracy with people not giving a shit in your country is hard enough to cripple your economic. just the tax break and 2k giving to the people is hard enough for the country to make a dent. China is able to curve that and become a bigger economical treat then it already has been. All wars are money related. This would even fly under the radars. they cant say they did it on purpose especially if they warned the country first. but in those instance communist has more power to stop the virus by forcing people right then other country that value freedom. because freedom include letting retards do the worst and unfortunately a single dumbass can become a HUGE problem in a pandemicc.

To me everyone only believing what major broadcasters and the government decide is ok for us to know is scarier. These conspiracy theories are indicative of a misinformed and rightfully mistrustful population. Them being wrong doesn’t mean the news is right.
