    giving up a lifetime's worth of relationships over words on the internet definitely feels like it's getting into mental illness territory, or at least a byproduct

    I’m not a professional so I don’t know but being
    radicalized on the internet in-and-of itself doesn’t mean the individual suffers from mental health issues.

    Probably not “way more likely”. Most people with true schizophrenia wouldn’t be able to keep that level of thinking organized enough. They could just be paranoid about the government in general, for no reason whatsoever.

    Easily the majority.

    Nailed it.

    Bingo.

    Lots of good thoughts/points here. The Q stuff is conspiracy based beliefs, which aren’t necessarily classified as delusional or psychotic. Typically conspiracies are external thoughts vs delusions which are from a more internal source. I’ve seen them described elsewhere as “sub-culturally accepted political/religious beliefs”, which is more appropriate in my opinion. People who follow these lines of thinking often have vulnerabilities in their personalities that make them more susceptible to accepting a message like Q, a need for control in a world that feels out of control (at least one reason that comes to mind, there are others). The issue though is that this can drift into delusion/psychosis when those people begin to believe they are a real part of the narrative and take steps to involve themselves personally. This isn’t always the case though even in these situations. The DSM doesn’t define any of what is going on right now as a mental health diagnosis. I’ll concede that the manual itself is flawed and not the end-all/be-all to everything mental health, but it is a pretty damn good guide. Most of what you are seeing is a combination of flawed ideals, personality weaknesses, and misinterpreted experiences leading to a belief system and world view that appears…crazy. Very little of it is true mental illness, at least in the classical and most appropriate sense. /rant

    I'd have to imagine social media and the interconnection of everyone in a (seemingly) personal way that we never had prior to 10 or 20 years ago all contribute to this. I think, generally, most people, whether they are Q followers, far right, democrats, republicans, antifa, ALL identify with the idea of wanting more control in a world that feels out of control, AND that they are a real part of the narrative and need to be personally involved.

    I mean, really, what percentage of Americans have a positive outlook? How many think things are getting better, or things are better today than they were X years ago?
