I think a lot about how Mikki Willis, the director of the pseudo-documentary Plandemic, went on Facebook the day after its release, and cried crocodile tears to bond with his shaken followers.

Make that trauma-bond: he terrified them, and then played the saviour. This is what domestic abusers and cult leaders do.

I think about Kelly Brogan, haloed by the Miami sky in her breakout COVID-denialism selfie-sermon, declaring that lockdown measures are like the “dehumanization agenda that preceded the Holocaust”. She carried it off with Mona Lisa equanimity. Her wellness porn really pops.

Zach Bush starts almost every podcast appearance with a plausible critique of Big Ag, or a poetic description of our interconnected microbiome. But before long he is speaking in New Age tongues about the beauty of death, blue eyes flashing.

Christiane Northrup plays her harp for a half-million followers red-pilled on her Great Awakening videos. Yolande Norris-Clarke caresses the microphone with her silky voice as she reads a Protocols of the Elders of Zion knock-off. Katie Griggs is dead, but the ghost of Guru Jagat
