PART FIVE: Why Worry?

Index

Part One: What is QAnon? — cult? political movement? fad?
Part Two: The Narrative, and Susceptibility what draws people in, and are some people more likely candidates than others?
Part Three: Among Our Friends when it gets up close and personal; the grief of losing friends to madness; conspirituality; right-wing hippies? once down the rabbit hole, how hard is it to get out again?
Part Four: Theatre, Grift, or Passionate Belief? how seriously does QAnon take itself? how is it like or unlike other grifts, scams, and cults? Is it a new religion?
