A New Breed of Conspiracy Theory

think.kera.org 1

Old school conspiracy theorists can be frustrating – but at least they tried to build an argument to support their claims. Nancy L. Rosenblum, Senator Joseph Clark Research Professor of Ethics in Politics and Government at Harvard, joins host Krys Boyd to talk about a new breed of conspiracy theorist – one who believes an idea to be true and uses repetition and bold assertions to turn fiction into fact. Her new book, written with Russell Muirhead, is called “A Lot of People Are Saying: The New Conspiracism and the Assault on Democracy” (Princeton University Press).
