That's what they get for spreading a false rumour about a toilet paper shortage that created a real shortage worldwide.

Make critical thinking a mandatory part of all educational curricula.  Start teaching basic logic concepts early and progress from there.

Don't teach people what to think, teach them how to think.

I thought some assholes in brazil started this whole thing and then because of internet it spread worldwide.

In this particular case?

Having a school system that promotes critical thinking.

Thought phages would work. Take Q, et als' tactics for their own spread and use them against the conspiracies. We'd need another Manhattan Project level of research to catch up to Russia's internet-psyops game though.

Japan's community is perhaps most notable for its reverence of Flynn. He only served in the Trump administration for 24 days and resigned after acknowledging he had misled Vice President Mike Pence over communications with the Russian ambassador; he later pleaded guilty to lying to federal agents about their conversation and was pardoned by Trump last week. The Japanese group even styles itself QArmyJapanFlynn after the former general who popularized "digital soldiers," a term many Q supporters use to describe themselves.

You guys really need better role models. Don't you have home grown war criminals or something to idolize, instead of using our 2nd rate nincompoop traitors?

Okabayashi also expressed belief in domestic conspiracy theories, such as the baseless claim that Japan's political and business elite -- including the prime minister -- are foreigners intent on exploiting and ultimately exterminating the Japanese race.

There's a real shocker. Conspiracy loons everywhere tend to believe in multiple, often contradictory conspiracies. In general they aren't very good at dealing with reality and have craptastic critical thinking skills.

Adherents have even suggested, without evidence, that Japanese hit movie "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba," which involves demons eating people, is meant to acclimate people to QAnon conspiracies about pedophilia and cannibalism.

The Japanese Q loons definitely share something with their American brethren, namely being dumber than a sack of door knobs.

So is the latest conspiracy that in the basement of a Japanese Okonomiyaki parlour which doesn't actually have a basement, there was a secret cabal of schoolgirl panty-sniffing pedos that painted a sign in Hiroshima which said "Drop the A-bomb here"?

From the people I know through connections that believe in Qanon... almost all of them were homeschooled or they were homeschooling their kids. They have been living in their own little world, disconnected from reality for a long time.

Homeschooling should be illegal, it only creates nutjobs.

This would require that the people who benefit from misleading the masses promote and support tools that take away their benefit.

It will never happen.

I attempted to explain this to my Fox News watching mother years ago:

Information is like water. It can be 99.9% pure, but the smallest poison or impurity will kill you and contaminate the batch.

Fox enabled this. NBC enabled this. Major corporations enabled this.

We are in a zombie economy now which is resembling a runaway freight train, and there ain't no Denzel coming to stop it.

Can't we just, finally declare Qanon part of Aum Shinrikyo so it can be treated like the terrorist ideology it is?

I'd also put some of the blame on the likes of YouTube and Facebook. Specifically, their algorithms that promoted extreme right-wing nonsense to vulnerable people.

Sometimes I yell about copyrights, I often mock Trump too.

But in my defense, at this this thread:
✅ mentions a cult
✅ is about Japan

Aum Shinrikyo is a terrorist cult of Japanese origin.

And it's called Product Sans, presumably because you're the product when you use their shiat, and because they couldn't possibly make the name any more Orwellian.

This. A million times, this!

Also, is it a mental disorder to have faith in a belief system despite having no good evidence that the belief system is 100% true? If you think that is a mental disorder, then you are saying the majority of people on the planet have mental disorders, based on their religious or other faith-based beliefs.

No, they are mostly not people with mental disorders. They are just people who have not been taught how to think critically, logically.

They are the kind of people to whom.you can say, "There is a small invisible fairy in this room with us, and you can't prove to me there isn't!" and they concede you are right and they are undecided, on the fence about whether or not there is truly a fairy in the room.

I spend a lot of time talking about revolutionary leaders and revolutionary thought in a high school world history class and sometimes I find myself actively encouraging dissent.  It just pops out of my mouth, honestly.

What would you consider good evidence? Let's say someone comes and performs some kind of miracle in front of you. Does that prove anything? Even if it really is supernatural and not a trick or you being on drugs, an alternative explanation to buying into his theology is that wizards are real and he's a wizard.

2020-12-02 8:13:08 AM  
Did you ever read the novel Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson where there's a linguistic "computer" virus that wipes people's mind and makes them reprogrammable? I'm beginning to think QAnon is like that, a human mind computer virus that is transmitted by written words and videos on the internet, but it just makes people stupid.
