Outside of the Muslim world, the area that has perhaps been the most eager importer of 'truth' doctrines, has been Russia.
Here a long standing opposition to and suspicion of the United States can be combined with a historically deep anti-semitism - fertile soil for truth theories. Flick around on your satellite package and you may come to Russia Today, an English language Russian station, that regularly plays host to the old Texas snake oil salesman himself - Alex Jones.
This Monday Jones was to be found regaling viewers on Obama and his puppet masters, followed by some David Sahyler-esque paranoia about how those powers that be wish to snuff him out. Just as Shayler expects us to believe he survived more assassination attempts than General De Gaulle, so it seems Jones is forever in the sights of the snipers bullet.
You can't help wondering that if anyone could find a way to combine being assassinated with still having access to the subsequent increase in book sales, Alex Jones would do it.............
