I am sorry for your loss but I am happy that you grew from the experience. This year, I heard many conspiracy theories. The first one that really caught my attention was the 5G theory. I lost a few friends throughout the whole mess. They called me a sheep because I did not believe their theories. When I asked for proof, they said I was brainwashed lol.
This way of thinking can be found everywhere. Even my husband who does not use social media doubts the real cause or origin of the virus.
I also recognized the videos on Youtube seem to be written from the same perspective, pushing the viewers into the more obscure theories.
The idea that Trump is saving children for child abuse while simultaneously holding children in cages is hypocrisy incarnate. Thanks for sharing your writing. Personally, I think QAnon is gaining steam and I do not know where Americans go from here.
