"Conspiracy theories"

Full article: Rated 4/5 “Conspiracy theory”
A 2019 Guardian article by Ebner promoting the idea that "conspiracy theorists" present a threat to democracy.

Ebner worked in 2019 at the London-based Institute for Strategic Dialogue.

“Across Europe, conspiracy theories that mix old antisemitic tropes with new ones that demonise migrants and Muslims have gained huge traction since the refugee crisis in 2015. A recent study showed that a stunning 60% of Brits believe in at least one conspiracy theory.”
Julia Ebner (February 2019)  Stop the online conspiracy theorists before they break democracy. [2]
