I made a video recently in which I talked about the possibility of a second Civil War in the United States. To be clear, I don't think this is likely to happen, but if it did...
Here's a conversation that I recorded with John Atwood on that topic.
This episode is inspired by my listening to a curated list of episode of the QAnon Anonymous Podcast, a left-oriented and sometimes mean-spirited exploration of the Q phenomenon.
C-Realm supporter and occasional podcast guest write of the QAnon Anonymous Podcast: QAnon Anonymous started in 2018. As with all podcasts I enjoy (including yours), I start listening from the beginning, then follow it chronologically. I am now up to about Feb. 2020, so just past the Jan. 6 event, which was huge for Q. What could be the basis of a conversation is the whole idea of conspiracy theories, and in particular how and why people get "red-pilled". There were clips from QAnon rallies and from Jan. 6 that are amazing in how seriously these people believe the crazy. A lot comes from the usual propaganda channels, but there seems to be something more going on.
He compiled the following list of essential episodes:
https://soundcloud.com/qanonanonymous/episode-1-introduction-to-qanon - Must-listen* overall survey. (*Unless you are completely new to the Q phenomenon, I would recommend skipping this one. It is the most mean-spirited episode on this list.)
https://soundcloud.com/qanonanonymous/episode-13-human-trafficking-feat-will-sommer - Human trafficking, which is an important part of Q.
https://soundcloud.com/qanonanonymous/episode-22-qanon-short-story-anthology-2018-edition - A collection of Q stories.
https://soundcloud.com/qanonanonymous/episode-43-scott-adams - The capture of Scott Adams by Trump/Q. I used to follow Scott Adam's blog, and noted his fascination of Trump's rhetorical and persuasive skills. I dropped it when he went into the deep end.
https://soundcloud.com/qanonanonymous/qanon-anonymous-podcast-episode-86-saving-the-mole-children-from-tunnels-under-central-park - The mole children raised in the tunnel network below Central Park in NYC are important to Q.
https://soundcloud.com/qanonanonymous/episode-94-the-new-age-to-qanon-pipeline - What it says. The episode of the C-Realm Vault Podcast draws most heavily from this episode.
https://soundcloud.com/qanonanonymous/episode-103-attending-the-savethechildren-qanon-rally-in-la - "Save the Children" is a cover for Q. Some crazy stuff going on in LA.
https://soundcloud.com/qanonanonymous/episode-125-coup-anon-feat-elle-reeve-eleanor-janega - Detailed description of the Jan. 6 event.
https://soundcloud.com/qanonanonymous/episode-128-from-anonymous-to-qanon-feat-dale-beran-matt-alt-fredrick-brennan-fuxnet - The connection of 4chan (the early Q outlet) to Japanese otakus.
