Among the Truthers (and Tea Party)

I am nearly through with Jonathan Kay's excellent book "Among the Truthers," which provides a tour through American conspiracy minded communities and persuasions. I have spent a great deal of time focusing on conspiracy theories and their negative impact on the American psyche, and Kay's work puts some of those arguments together far better than I have in the past. I recommend buying a copy.

Vice Magazine recently put together a short documentary on the Tea Party/Patriot Movement that is also discussed extensively in "Among the Truthers."
