“You may have noticed your evangelical family and friends buying into conspiracy theories. Why is that?

Hosted by Trevor Poelman”

Again…it’s because we are talking about naturally gullible people.

These types fall for anything, based on the cheapest, most ridiculous excuse for “proof”.

They don’t want what is objectively true…They want whatever increases their own power and control…whatever makes them feel good.

…And, yes…They do try to raise their children, to lack critical thinking skills…From personal experience, that is true…They also instill a fear and distrust of other groups of people…and an overarching social paranoia…

…They teach you there are invisible, interdenominational beings, that can take over your body…making it do violent and creepy things against your will…

…They tell you all sorts of things “invite” such creatures to invade your body…

They teach you all sorts of things as historically, and objectively “true”, despite complete incapability to substantiate any of it.

        Talking of bias, I hear that the American Conservative Enterprise Institute, who apparently sourced the data underpinning the graphic at 3:30, don’t do too well on objective reportage. They rate as “moderately to strongly biased toward conservative causes through story selection and/or political affiliation” and “they may utilize strong loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes), publish misleading reports, and omit information that may damage conservative causes” https://mediabiasfactcheck.com/american-enterprise-institute/ Of course mediabiasfactcheck could be biased too …

        Observing the US from afar as I do, it seems to me that your country is steadily destroying itself by promoting polarisation and aggression, whilst simultaneously ignoring fundamental human values. So long as you pay homage and kow tow to elites, you will continue to have a terminally sick society.

        Personally…I think they’re trying to destroy us from within, so that the actual U.S. population is as powerless as your average citizen of any “third world” country.

        I think that’s been the goal, for a very long time…lower our abilities and expectations, to the point where everybody just keeps their head down and obediently goes to work…just to survive.

        The media here is mostly bought and corrupt…which is why I mostly go with small and citizen reporters…commentators…
