"What Is So Terrible About Conspiracy Theories Anyway?"

Well, first of all, the Lancet Commission on Public Policy found that Donald Trump's policymaking (or lack thereof) led directly to the deaths of approximately 460,000 Americans.

Without nonsensical conspiracy theories (and countless lies on myriad topics), those 460,000 people would still be alive, enjoying the spring with their families and friends.

These false beliefs are not fringe.

They are mainstream American thought.

They form the core of the one of the US's two political parties.
