'Self-consistent' - an.....dude have you looked at the recent state of the fringe narrative? Really?
What "fringe narrative"? The fringe, by nature, is full of mavericks. Everyone has their own pet theories.
There's only one thing we all agree on, and that is that the mainstream or orthodox narrative is shite. If there is such a thing as a "fringe narrative", that is it.
Seems pretty self-consistent to me.
