The Van Helsing Impetus – Excerpt No. 387

“You mean that weird guy spouting off nonsense in the town square?” Clara confirmed.

“Most communities had one or two. These individuals lived on the fringes of what’s considered acceptable behaviour. Villagers let them be, because they were easily ignored and harmless,” Evelyn said.

“The internet isn’t just one community,” Clara said, “is it?”

“That’s exactly right,” Evelyn replied. “Now they can reach out to like-minded individuals.”

“It amplifies their voices,” Evelyn said. “Now a villager comes across a mass of these idiots spouting off their wild theories and thinks: Well, they can’t all be wrong?”
