Friday Fun 42: Beware the narrowing of the circles in which you move and have your being

by quaesitor

My mind is steeped in the mad and self-referential world of conspiracy theories at the moment, as I try to make a way through to something coherent. So this great cartoon from last week’s New Yorker nailed it for me.

But its challenge extends far further than just uber-right-wing nutters. It applies to anyone who never moves outside their own worldview circles.

So get out of those bunkers… and that includes you too, Guardian readers!! ho ho.
