Abstract:     
The Internet offers an extremely prolific hotbed for the recombination and propagation of radical narratives, mainly by the formation of topical net-communities. Relatively free and general access to the World Wide Web (and digital literacy) together with anonymousness and the opportunities offered by the new participatory media has brought substantial changes in the ways people communicate with each other. The Internet provides a virtual space where radical narratives may circulate and proliferate freely, practically without restriction, since, in contrast to traditional media, the gatekeeping function is very weak. Apocalyptic religious fundamentalism and conspiracism are just some movements (fields) that readily took advantage of the new ways of communicating; and various extremist groups formed in turn their own dramaturgy of “ritual deliberation."
