I wonder whether conspiracies have to get more extreme, more convoluted as politicians and public figures become more openly corrupt.

it's like films and TV programs need to stay at least a step ahead to remain interesting. first few seasons of "house of cards" were great at the time because it was all so crazy, but Trump has exceeded pretty much everything in those episodes IRL (except maybe for pushing a reporter in front of an oncoming subway train, but there's still time...)
 
Read a few things lately about US senators making cryptic QAnon tweets in order to shore up the extreme right fan base in america as elections are looming. Surprising that this anonymous reddit-based paedophile obsessed conspiracy was the one to go mainstream. Lots of factors combining at once in a perfect storm to go viral or whatever.

Is there a good cynical documentary about it yet? I tried watching plandemic ironically but it was just too shit.

not as far as i know but its one of the most interesting stories around. i was saying to Danny yesterday its almost imposssible to look at it without developing your own conspiracy theories about Q's ultimate identity and designs

From my own speculating pov, it looks as though Q was curated and composed by a high level shadow group. Much in the same way Isis appears to have been. There's something slick about the production.
 
yes, it's incredibly well done. it's such a multi-faceted story

whilst i'm a bit weary of the concept of psy-ops and whatnot, if someone told me it was a "foreign" (russian/chinese etc) project to destabilise a country i would believe it.

there was a lot of hysteria on left-wing twitter about the destabilising influence facebook propaganda had on the Philippines election for example (an easy summary- https://www.sciencefriday.com/articles/facebook-fake-news-philippines-elections/). if someone was to employ the same on the US internet then a deeply in-depth piece of bullshit like this would be fantastic because it plays into every insecurity all at once

really strong work

While it's probably wise to be skeptical of James Bond style villainry at that level, I think it's also pretty safe to assume that there are boards dedicated to coming up with new fantastic ways of tending the strings.

Anyone get the feeling 'Super Saturday' could be a deliberate attempt to cause chaos?
Well the likely strategy, as I see it, is going to be:

* blame the severity of the initial outbreak on the inherent stupidity and waywardness of the British public ("We trusted you to use your common sense");
* blame the likely second wave of infections on BLM/antifa protests over the summer;
* blame economic crisis, empty supermarket shelves etc. next January (when Brexit transition period ends and we still don't have a deal) on the pandemic itself.

the conspiracy theory consensus seemed to be that Maxwell had lots of dirt on powerful people and that would protect her from prosecution, wonder what happened.

also, timing is interesting: two weeks after Barr/Trump fires the head of the Southern District of NY, they suddenly move on Maxwell. are Barr/Trump trying to get dirt on Dems out there before the election? or is the SDNY doing this in retaliation against the firing because the dirt involves Mar-a-Lago and perhaps the Donald?

that's a conspiracy theory right there. powerful people want to keep us from uncovering the truth, so they hacked dissensus and deleted it. and they have the perfect cover: it somehow "got lost" in the great dissensus migration. hmm.
