The thing with Q-anon is that it's already widely accepted as being a conspiracy theory.
I can see that it shares some similarities with a cult, but there doesn't seem to be any kind of 'leader'
that benefits form Q-anon - as in, is there anyone who is amassing power and influence and money as a result of Q-anon?
Is there some kind of centralized organization that is asking for donations?
the only person who benefits from Q-anon, presumably by getting more votes? It hasn't exactly worked for him! He certainly hasn't announced any extensive new policies about halting child-trafficking, as far as I an aware. It doesn't look like he has tried to actively play into the whole thing (sorry, I may be wrong, I haven't been following all this!)
As far as I can tell, Q-anon is a very widely dispersed movement with people who have a diverse set of beliefs that keep changing and evolving. A bit like all the people who believe in U.F.O's - they don't all believe the same thing, and there is no one organization that is attempting to extort money and free labor from them.
Yeah, sure, the whole weird mess could have been started by some people who wanted to make a ARG, as has been widely speculated. Consider this article from the New York Times
]? where a guy named Adrian Hon
who works in the ARG industry thinks there are a lot of similarities between Q-anon and a ARG.
I just wonder what it was they actually wanted to achieve with Q-anon, if
it is some kind of game? Just mayhem?
