“Many people feel alienated and left behind by the world. There’s something about QAnon like ARGs (alternate reality games) that reward and involve people for being who they are. They create a community that lets people show off their “research” skills and those people become incredibly valuable to the community.” The NYT’s Charlie Warzel and Adrian Hon (exec of a gaming company) with one of the most interesting looks at QAnon that I’ve seen. Is QAnon the Most Dangerous Conspiracy Theory of the 21st Century? (And is the alienation that drives members of these groups an issue we can address?)

+ Excellent video on the topic: Trump, QAnon and The Return of Magic. (This a weird, confusing subject that you might feel like ignoring. But it’s a big deal and the links in this section will help you understand it.)
