We, The Paranoid

We, The Paranoid September 3, 2013

Something to add to my endless reading list: Jesse Walker’s United States of Paranoia. Here’s a brief interview:

I like that he emphasizes that conspiracism has always been part of America’s mainstream. It’s clear that he’s expanding on folks like Hofstaedter and Daniel Pipes, both of whom viewed conspiracy theories in a political framework. Walker seems to be taking a sociological approach, and that lets him ditch the left-right, populist-elite labels.

There’s a more in-depth interview at the Washington Post, but it isn’t something I can embed.
