'We believe that the government and its co-conspirators are hiding all sorts of monstrous and shocking truths from us, concerning assassinations, extraterrestrials, the genesis of aids, the 9/11 attacks, the dangers of vaccines, etc. This was all true before we became familiar with the terms post-factual and post-truth, before we elected a president with an astoundingly open mind about conspiracy theories, what’s true and what’s false, the nature of reality. How widespread is this promiscuous devotion to the untrue? How many Americans now inhabit alternate realities? 20 years of research reveal a rough census of American credulity and delusion.
