Have you been laughing at the Q followers, or calling them ‘conspiracy theorists’ or calling it a cult? It’s the antithesis of a cult – a cult has “groupthink” whereas Q encourages thinking for yourself – constantly.
There is no worshipping, no devotion.
It is a critical thinker who when researching, wants to examine all points of view & gather as much information from as many sources as possible in order to make an informed, intelligent assessment of a situation.
And there is nothing wrong with that.
So ask yourself why would somebody discourage that, as the mainstream media does constantly, causing those who don’t research to echo the nonsense ⁉️
