American political culture is sick from delusion, paranoia and abjectly hopeless leadership. Throw lots of military-grade weaponry into the mix and that makes for carnage.
Americans are now witnessing a new era of conspiracy mongering and fake news via the rise of the fringe “QAnon” movement, among a plethora of paranoid claims that Covid-19 is an elite-fueled hoax and that it was secretly created by powerful people working in the shadows.
