Frank, Thank you for this outstanding piece. Speaking as someone who pushes back against conspiracies in the alternative spiritual culture (Illuminati, etc), and who is also a dedicated part of that culture, I know the effort entailed — and the hours required — to wade into absurdities and come away with plain facts. Please keep on. It’s helping. Bravo.
