@NuclearTess This is a typical feel-good propaganda story; I suggest you take it with a grain of salt. Do you really believe the anti-vaxxer's delusion could be so easily corrected?

This exact same formula is used all the time, where a strawman bad guy is set up, an effective counter-argument offered, leaving the misguided fool schooled and enhancing the feeling of smug superiority of the listener.

Very commonly found in Christian propaganda stories against atheists/"evolutionists".

@leadore @NuclearTess i think there was a study recently that showed conspiracy-theory-minded people don't actually care about the substance of the claim, but instead are swayed by the conspiratorial aspect of it. lemme see if i can find it

@NuclearTess except it's not a comspiracy, it's a fact:

@anna It seems to me like their goal is to destabilize western governments/societies through exploiting corruption, infrastructure insecurities(especially with voting, but wouldn’t be surprised if they were behind some western targeted ransomware campaigns), and disinformation campaigns

@NuclearTess "strange popping noise as her brain misfired" is where I lost it
