Meanjin Vol 80 No 1
Australia is the fourth biggest country in the world for QAnon social media content and discussion, and its fans are a wide ranging group, from celebrity chef Pete Evans to federal MP's like George Christensen. Margaret Simons wonders what brings them all together, why ideas like the theories promoted by QAnon have appeal and how social media and the collapse of much traditional journalism has fuelled the breakdown of a coherent idea of 'the public'.
