QAnon conspiracies starting to overlap with climate denial networks | Red, Green, and Blue

QAnon is what it has been from the start: a fantasy world, not built from scratch but applied to this existing one. It's a filter, through which adherents can believe they see the truth that elites are keeping hidden from them, a worldview through which incoming information is either incorporated to support the narrative, or if contradictory, is rejected and twisted such that it, too, becomes proof that "they" are scared you're on the right track. And of course, at the most basic level, the idea that the elite use their money and power for perverse ends is unfortunately quite far from far-fetched, providing just enough grim reality to make it feel authentic.

Like all conspiracy theories, it sucks in those eager for some deeper meaning and purpose in life, subconsciously seeking a way to regain some sense of autonomy in a world that's rendered them otherwise powerless.

But in their shared delusion, there is some sense of power that may soon become quite literal, because they're running for Congressional office — 78 former or current congressional candidates embrace QAnon.

How do people believe something that's so consistently proven itself wrong?
