In the latest two part HIAW, Matt and Sean examine the political economy and pre-history of everyone's favorite far-right conspiracy movement. How has alienation and economic crisis combined to create a heady, and perhaps dangerous, mix of religious fervor and crackpot ideology? How does Qanon overlap with conspiracy theories of the past? How is it represent something new and different? The boys do their best to get their heads around it!
Part two will be released for patrons later in the week.
