In a recent article and accompanying podcast, I had the chance to explore the perplexing and deeply troubling “Jewish Space Laser” conspiracy theory. We laugh about it, but should we? I interviewed Mike Rothschild, author of Jewish Space Lasers: The Rothschilds and 200 Years of Conspiracy Theories. Our conversation aimed to shed light on how such theories often find their origin in antisemitism, particularly focusing on the Rothschild family as a recurring target.
“Almost all of these theories eventually connect back to the Jews, and the Rothschilds are seen as the ultimate Jews—the kings of the Jews. So it all coalesced for me into writing a book to figure out who this family is, and who they are not.” – Mike Rothschild
