The problem is we are so divided
how is there any hope of reaching anything like consensus on what that new socio economic model should be?
If you pump out enough news/info thatís either revealed to be out and out bollocks and/or promotes a status quo that isnít working for the vast majority, you lose trust.
In that scenario, itís far easier for non-state/corporate sources to influence people - whether that be with the truth or a different flavour of bullshit.
Ultimately, itís a significant indication that the current socio-economic system is irreparably ####ed. What itíll be replaced with depends on how quickly the situation is comprehended. Unfortunately, itís people on the right who have moved quicker and, crucially, have benefitted from a calamitous focus instead on the left. But then itís the left thatís the bigger threat to wealth and power I suppose, and thatís what controls the spotlights and megaphones.
So much effort spent convincing people that expertise is just an opinion during the Brexit campaign now come home to roost.
I get that the government could have done better, and some folk may have over played the issue. I think everyone accepts vaccines shouldnt be rushed out either, and that masks arent a golden bullet to saving the world.
But the folk pushing things to the extreme are bonkers, one tiny step from flat earthers.
There is a 5G mask going up 350 metres from my daughters school, 3 kids from my daughters class have been moved to a different school by their parents because of this, oddly it doesnt yet include the main crackpot anti vax mother.
It really feels like the last 5/6 years people have decided to be stupid
The first 20 years of the internet werent this mad, were they ?
We used to laugh at David Icke, now people are believing him
