Modernity and Absurdity’s Christian Perez talks about modern and historic conspiracy theory Live in Hammonton. We start of getting an explanation of what is “real conspiracy”? Likewise, what is “conspiracy theory”? Through history there are a lot of examples of both.

And the damage that is done to our movements is real. Conspiracy theory takes energy away from the real organizing work that a revolution requires.
