The whole fact-check thing, though, is like… rough. If you’ve been spoon fed information, and then some “public policy” disagrees with it, who are you to believe? Especially when rationality and cognition can’t decipher the answer on their own. It’s strange. I’ve thought about the misinformation problem before. Did a high school econ problem on it. Economies of imperfect information. So many problems arise due to ignorance. It’s hard. In the end you have to put your faith somewhere. I usually go with what makes the most sense, though. Do some digging for yourself, you know? It takes a little effort but it’s way more consoling.
