My wife (who is Japanese) has always been a little too ready to believe in conspiracy theories. Since we lived really close to the WTC, she latched on to a lot of 9-11 stuff, but now I think the earthquake has really affected her. She's brought up HAARP, the possibility that the quake was triggered by a nuke, the Rockefellers, and more. She thinks there are plots to discredit nuclear power, ruin the Japanese economy and more.
She's been feeding these thoughts with a ton of Youtube in Japanese.
I'm looking for some sources that might nudge her back towards reality. Since English is her second language, she will say it is too much effort for her to read documents that I can find (like debunking911.com)
Being Japanese, she is resistant to going to counseling, even though I think what is really happening is some kind of PTSD from 2001 being brought to the surface by the latest disaster.
