BURBAGE THEATER PRESETS «THE CONSPIRICENTER»
BY JAMES LUCEY
You’re about to enter a world where anything goes. Where everyone’s voice is equal and anything is possible. Where the rabbit hole goes as deep as you’re willing to allow it. A place where truth is illusory. A world where the earth is flat. A world in which the moon landing never happened. A world where the deep state is run by cabal of Satan worshippers are trying to use a message of human decency to overthrow the US government. A world where fake news, isn’t so fake after all. You’re about to enter:
The Conspiricenter.
