    Ain’t that the truth. Many things about society irk me, but unfounded internet “information” is near the top of the list.

    Talk about confirmation bias.

    American’s also appear to have completely forgotten how to judge the quality of sources. All opinions are equal, so a housewive’s opinion on what causes Autism is given equal time with the opinions of doctors and scientists.

    For some strange reason, experts aren’t to be trusted–they are all “in on it”. Whatever “it” may be.

    People seem to confuse skepticism with populism.

    Tough Times… hard to know what to Believe, who to Trust or how to Act.

    But on the bright side, there are some wonderful New Opportunities for upstart Prophets, Cult Leader wannabees and such.

    Not that I would know much about that sort of thing…

    @ pi3832

    Don’t forget about all those partisan-whoring pundits who apparently know more about how to run the country than the politicians do…but only when the other side is in control, of course.

    Times are good for loud-mouthed idiots with delusional opinions.

    Ditto Jamie.

    “Accepting others as they are is a small price to pay in return for being accepted for who you are.”

    -Stripe, “The Fine Print”

    Yes, I’ve quoted myself (hallmark of delusion).

    But you might drop by my site and check out The Fine Print; I believe it to be germane.

    And remember, kids: Good Manners never go out of style!

  8. I think religion should go in the lower left.

    How can you say an entire country doesn’t know how to evaluate sources? There are normal people here. And it’s not like we aren’t capable of producing scientific and technological advances.

    I think it’s more good luck v. journalism. Not good luck and goodbye journalism. It does look like independent research and informed decisions pay off. I do wonder what the dot would be in the lower left — blind faith? naivete?

    All the experts and pundits are WRONG!

    We have as much truth in us as the so called experts. It would take me 3 days to give examples of how wrong all the “sources” are that in reality are fronts for the big PR machine.

    Having said that however, don’t ever forget, Stocks are your best long term investment, house prices never do down and Republicans are for smaller government and free markets. LMAO.

    I think lower left would be “a secret”.

    I’d go with “mystery” on the lower left. Sort of the opposite of “discovery” when you think about the fundamental mysteries and discoveries of the universe.
