Conspiracy narratives

From ADTAC Disinformation Inventory


"Conspiracy narratives appeal to the human desire for explanatory order, by invoking the participation of powerful (often sinister) actors in pursuit of their own political goals. These narratives are especially appealing when an audience is low-information, marginalized or otherwise inclined to reject the prevailing explanation. Conspiracy narratives are an important component of the ""firehose of falsehoods"" model."


  • QAnon: conspiracy theory is an explanation of an event or situation that invokes a conspiracy by sinister and powerful actors, often political in motivation, when other explanations are more probable [1]
