The difference between the politics of my youth & today is that then conspiracy theorists were a lunatic fringe focused on Kennedy’s assassination. The LaRouche crowd were considered deranged & probably bankrolled by nefarious forces. Today, they have become a dominant current, especially on social media, closely aligned with fascist forces. And the worst thing is, many can’t tell the difference between the conspiracists, the socialists, & the fascists. The fundamental difference is the absence of working class kids who by their political nature are more skeptical, hard-nosed & not so easily swept off their feet by fashionable bullshit.
