    What a tone deaf article. Seriously. The issue is FOX news. Plain and simple. Since the rise of fox news is literally the bell curve. LOL. Wake up. Masks work. Science is real. Fox news is the problem.

      Masks don’t work. Science is real and using drugs with surgery to mangle confused boys and girls does not change the gender. People who got the shots still got Covid but often got horrible side effects.

      Since you’re “friendly fire” then you shave to problem hurting innocent people.

      Do you trust the science?

      “There is uncertainty about the effects of face masks. The low to moderate certainty of evidence means our confidence in the effect estimate is limited, and that the true effect may be different from the observed estimate of the effect. The pooled results of RCTs did not show a clear reduction in respiratory viral infection with the use of medical/surgical masks. There were no clear differences between the use of medical/surgical masks compared with N95/P2 respirators in healthcare workers when used in routine care to reduce respiratory viral infection.”

      People have a choice – mainstream media is biased – masks are for halloween + covid is a joke.

    This isn’t the first time people thought religion was done for. (In the run up to two world wars Tolstoy wrote ‘A Confession’) Joseph Campbell pointed out throughout his career that it wasn’t positive knowledge that unified peoples it was their cultural narratives that engaged with the unknown and numinous.

    This article ignores a fundamental factor, which is the weaponization of information by both sides of the spectrum. Compromise is difficult when the actors in the game have diametrically opposed philosophies and goals. Expertise of the spokesperson is also in the eye of the beholder. As we have seen, so-called “experts” are often shown to be filtering or withholding information based on their own agendas. That is why public trust is so low.

    I certainly hope Frendly (sic) fire wrote his comment with his tongue firmly planted in his cheek. If not, mankind is in a heap o trouble.

    The internet has ensured that everyone has had it up to here with everyone. No one cares what Joe Blow thinks about anything. Adults make decisions for themselves based upon their beliefs and how they want to live, period. No amount of toxic shaming or cultural wokeness is ever going to change a person’s beliefs or their identity.

    Fake News and corrupt government officials are responsible for misinformation. Some people accept this misinfo because they have a respect for those they see as “authorities”. Also, it seems that watching TV tends to put people into a hypnotic state that causes “programming”. I wonder if those of us who don’t watch TV agree with one another more than the general population.

    As the article express at the End, it’s not an instruction living a clear idea about ambivalent criteria about truth.
