Conspiracy theories have always been a part of American life and culture, but up until about seven years ago, they existed on the fringes of society. More recently, they have become mainstream.
In fact, through a constellation of accusations and conspiracy theories, an entire movement known as QAnon has been birthed—and with consequences that have been undeniably corrosive to society.
