Sounds straight from the heart. In the video, the daughter of a man who committed suicide
after becoming absorbed by conspiracy culture relates her thoughts about what has happened.

No doubt there is a pathology associated with any extreme obsessive behavior . . . depression, isolation, etc plays a significant part in the dance as well. The question is . . . when does fascination with conspiracies become a disease . . . ?

When you decide to cure the disease by suicide?

Summary of the video:
A woman addresses an unnamed man who reminds her of her father who took his own life. The father had been a strong, loving, protective parent who was a talented mechanic who could "fix anything." He descended into psychotic paranoia, probably triggered by obsessive watching of conspiracy videos on the Internet after the personal tragedies of the death of his son and his wife's "Stage four" cancer . Though not explicitly stated, we may assume the household held a "fundamentalist" religious orientation because of her opening statement that she needed to post because "The Lord placed this on my heart..." and her closing statement to this unnamed man, apparently a poster of similar "End Times" (my characterization) videos with "fear in his eyes"...,"God bless and much love, brother." Her message to this unnamed person was one of hope and encouragement that he was not alone and ignored, that there were people who cared about him, and that the notions that "no one wants to be around you..." and that the world was about to end were "crap."

My comment:
I did not see a visual, perhaps because I am only barely computer literate, but the audio was clear and clearly heartfelt. This woman speaks to a fundamental pathology in Western Civilization, namely , what social critic Thomas Frank calls "misplaced class rage." As good a name as any, but the pathology goes far beyond the outmoded categories of class and social position. It speaks to the growing awareness that the way we are working isn't working. The old social rules no longer seem to work, and the new rules...we haven't got the new rules yet. With unknowing (...I don't want to ramble...") but unerring intuition, she says that it is "...easier--we would rather look somewhere else instead of what's really wrong with ourselves and what's going on with our own lives." There is more to say on this topic, but this may not be the place for it.

This is an ok place to say more. IMO, Fear Porn is only a logical extension of one of the primary means of social control evolved over the last 20,000 years or, give or take... See the seminal Pulitzer winning book by the estimable Jared Diamond, Guns, Germs, and Steel. He basically invented the Science of History, not to be confused with the History of Science. Evolutionary biologist Diamond had the novel notion of using scientific methodology to study human history. Instead of taking the word of the winners, the power elites and their shills, for the "official" version, he drew from Anthropology, Sociology, Archeology, Population Biology, Comparative Literature Philology, and whatever other empirical data that might apply, as well as what he calls "natural experiments." These would be parallel situations or events, that could be studied, if enough relevant variable could be correlated. Recognizing the truism that correlation does not equal causation, nonetheless, that strategy seemed more reliable than the usual mythology and self-congratulatory propaganda that passes for history. Drawing on this methodology, Diamond makes the case that the early bands (extended families of perhaps 6-12 early humans) needed only the Alpha Male to settle disputes by virtue of his physical strength. In their reality of hunter/gatherers coming to the limit of the carrying capacity of a particular territory, they had to move on to find more food. As these bands successfully survived and proliferated, they inevitably bumped up against other bands who had arrived at a place with food resources first. In order to avoid starvation for both bands, one had to be driven away by the other (preferred to killing them, that took more scarce food energy). The life or death lesson was that the stranger was an enemy who would take the food from your family's mouthes. Over time, the strategy developed that it would be better to make the other band slaves to work for your band for minimal rations. Inevitable intermarriage meant that now there were two bands of more or less equlal status.

Sorry, posted prematurely. So now, the two bands had more or less equal power, more complex structure was required to govern, i.e., keep people from killing each other. Also, the evolving social structures and primitive division of labor, not to mention simple brute force of numbers meant surpluses and leisure. Noe they needed a chief/boss, who was more like 1st among equals due to intelligence, or force of personality, or some such, since you can't settle disputes between two Alpha Males without risking losing one or both. You also needed other simple structures like a war chief in case of meeting an enemy band, and shaman to learn the healing or otherwise useful plants, as well as interceding with the nature spirits and keeping the history of what was now a tribe. The process continued essentially unchanged as tribes merged into kingdoms (more bureaucracy) and kingdoms merged under a High King (lots more bureaucracy)to become what we would recognize as a state. If you consider empires as hyperstates, there is no fundamental structural difference between the boss/group of bosses at the top with the lion's share of the resources, a somewhat larger group of underbosses who support them and collect some smaller percentage of the total resources (middle managers), an army of merchants, technocrats, technologists, military, etc. to support the power elite, and all the rest of us 99% worker bees. All, mind you, still shaped by the fundamental fear of the stranger and the reliance on physical force for protection.

The dirty secret of all the real glories of Wester Civ is underlying all of it is fear and the shame of broken relationships.
Fear Porn is the response of poorly educated people confronted by social change beyond anything seen before due to the pressures of population growth and concomitant environmental degradation along with technology that shrinks the world into a global village where Everyman is given the fantasy of living like a king. Most of the Fear Porn is generated by the "misplaced class rage of ordinary people who see their values and belief systems called into question by Science and the evolutionary impact of democracy. But the genesis of the Fear Porn can be found in the propaganda of the ruling elite who use the time honored (because successful) strategy of Us against Them, those demonic blacks or homosexuals or terrorists or, most dangerous of all, Socialists! Those godless communists who want to take the hard-earned resources of working people and give them to the welfare cheats or the Chinese we are in debt to, or whoever...

Classic blame the victim. Pay no attention to the smiling man in the $1000 suit with his hand in your pocket, he wants to help you by giving you a job at $7.25/hour (current minimum wage, no benefits) while he takes advantage of the best Congress money can buy. No wonder people are angry. Also accounts for the anti-science, anti-union, anti-welfare sentiments gaining many adherents lately. The Chairman of the House Science and Technology Committee was recently caught on tape declaiming that the Theory of Evolution and concerns over global climate change were "lies from the pit of hell." Astonishing!

As the woman in the Fear Porn recording we reference says, don't listen to all that "crap." A rational, spiritual, World Wisdom Culture is struggling to be born (check out pioneers like The Institute of HeartMath and the Institute of Noetic Sciences). Conscious Evolution is the next phase of human society; people all over the world are reaching for it. This forum is a good example that I am glad too have been guided to by the Internet Angels.

It is common in Metabunk when making a claim to back it up with evidence. In this case US Rep. Paul Broun did say these things. He is not the Chairman of the House Science and Technology Committee he sits on the committee. Lamar Smith is the Chairman. The posting guidelines are here.
