Sean Hackbarth: Good piece by @MistyACallahan: "Navigating a post-truth world" pllqt.it/fF85CA
Misty CallahanBut why "fact-check" anymore when fiction make you feel good? We have become, as a culture, more obsessed with feeling right than actually being right. Which is good for the ego, but it's not good for soiciety in general. If we only accept that which appeals to our biases, or our feelings, it creates echo-chambers or emotional enclaves that reason can not penetrate. When you get to a point where reason nor reality can penetrate the psyche of an individual, at best at best you're dealing with denial, at worst, a delusion. Both can give way to a mob-mentality which, historically, is often detremental to society.
