Barkun cited in Medium article on nation’s current post-truth moment

Michael BarkunA Culture of Conspiracy, written by Michael Barkun, professor emeritus of political science, was cited in the Medium article "How America Lost Its Mind." "Such subject-specific areas as crank science, conspiracist politics, and occultism are not isolated from one another," but rather they are interconnected, according to Barkun. "The consequence of such mingling is that an individual who enters the communications system pursuing one interest soon becomes aware of stigmatized material on a broad range of subjects." 04/12/18
