What conspiracy theorists and Internet doctors have in common

New day, new email. Judge for yourself.


I once read a Facebook post about some politicians.

The plot was this: a bunch of angry conspiracy-happy clowns were tired of all the lockdowns, all the mask mandates, all the social distancing and so on.

And rightfully so.

This was one year well into lockdown and people started to get ‘Corona fatigue.’

Ie. not caring so much about rules, regulations and recommendations.

Anyway, the Facebook post was pretty hilarious.

It was a poster with a picture of two prominent politicians from a country that shall remain nameless.

The poster said ‘WANTED! DEAD OR ALIVE!’ and the names of the two politicians were written on the poster.

At first I just scoffed at it and didn’t pay much attention to it.

But then later on I realized something important.

The people posting this kind of content and commemorating it, really just want change.

That’s all they want.

But, what ‘change’ do they get if all they do is posting junk, spreading gossip and outright harassing people who are just doing their jobs?

Even if they’re doing a poor job?

Why not take matters into their own hands instead of spending hours upon hours on social media?

And it got me thinking further.

These conspiracy clowns are the same people as I call the ‘Internet doctors’.

You know, those who in the comments sections always seem to have a suggested solution to anyone’s health problem yet still haven’t gone through anything themselves.

Handing out advice when they clearly don’t know what they’re talking about.

It’s a different thing with [REDACTED] which actually works against vitamin D deficiency.

At least that’s what thousands upon thousands of customer reviews say.

Judge for yourself here:



And that’s how it’s done if you want people to think. Talk about something that has no value whatsoever and then compare it with something that actually works — the product. Because the customers say so. That’s proof right there.
