For hundreds of years, there have been conspiracy theories that have suggested that a small group of powerful men in secret societies have run the governments of the world for their own benefits. Most of these conspiracy theories are grandiose, unwieldy and unfalsifiable. Many of these theories demonize other social or religious groups like Jews or Catholics. Tonight on Inquiry we talk wth writer and researcher ARTHUR GOLDWAG about his latest book THE NEW HATE: A HISTORY OF FEAR AND LOATHING ON THE POPULIST RIGHT. His book delineates the historical precedents for modern groups like “the birthers”. We also talk about the nefarious Protocols and the Elders of Zion, that infamous anti-Semitic tract that has influenced paranoid conspiracists like Hitler and Henry Ford for over a hundred years.
