Agreed. Conspiracy theorists gonna conspiracy theory. But the less exposure the rest of us have to their ideas, the better the chance we have of slowing their spread.

 

Where do we draw the line? I'd argue a dude rolling into a pizza joint armed to the teeth or some of these white supremacist or militia groups (i.e., Proud Boys, the kidnapping nutjobs up in my neck of the woods, etc.) being radicalized on these sites is ample evidence to suggest we're nearing that point, if not beyond it.

 

The QAnon true believers are probably beyond saving. But they should be quarantined to the darker corners of the internet where they can't continue to infect other people.

Yes....Qanon the only cult in the history of the world to tell its followers to "think for yourself" and "research things out yourself" and "come to your own conclusions".  And no, I am not a follower of QAnon.  But I do have an curious brain that likes to absorb information.

 

How do you think censorship started in totalitarian societies where everything is controlled and the truth is highly censored?  Did it not all begin with...."this is for the greater good"??

 

If you support censorship OF LITERALLY ANYTHING then you are no different than all of those in human history that were also pro-censorship.  Here is a short list:

 

Nazis

Communists

Dictators

Tyrants

Totalitarians

 

Right now there are several billion people in China who all have internet on their phones and computers yet they have never heard of or ever seen pictures (see below) of the 1989 Tiananmen Square Massacre where massive protests of the people of China rose up against the communist regime and were gunned down by the thousands (10,000 lives lost).  This event has also been scrubbed from most super liberal commie loving university history books.  Our beloved free country is well on our way to this horrific nightmare of living our lives in a prison society where every bit of information is either twisted from the truth or censored and scrubbed all together.  And here I am conversing online with supposed 'fellow Americans who love freedom for all', having to explain that censorship in any shape or form is evil.  God help us.

So you support our elementary students watching porn in the classrooms if their curious minds want to absorb it?  That's a strange take.  Probably not one I'd say out loud.

 

Because, obviously, most schools "censor" internet use by blocking adult websites...

The fact that someone laughed at the massacre of 10,000 people in my post above is all the more evidence that we are living in the last days, wickedness abounds and the Lord is returning VERY soon.

 

 

 

I'd bet $100 that isn't what they were laughing at.

It's amazing that somebody can dismiss basic facts and claim intellectual curiosity as a pretext for doing so. 

Oh...but beware.....he's a curious mind open to new information because he loves to soak it in.

 

Meanwhile, the information he's soaking in is BS.

The moment you regurgitate BS like wearing masks are detrimental to your health, you lose all credibility.  

Because you have scientific proof that wearing masks are not detrimental over a long period of time for every single human on earth?  No...no you don't.

Judging others for looking behind the curtain?  Being intellectual is taking in ALL sides of an argument.  Being an intellectual is taking in ALL information available.  The one who shuts himself off from any side of an argument or shuts himself off from any kind of information (albeit "BS" information) is destined for big surprises later in their existence.

No, being an intellectual is one that takes in the information and can discern if it's BS.  You obviously are having an issue with that.

 

Interestingly, there is no factual information that masks are detrimental to your health.  Meanwhile, there are decades of information and experience telling you otherwise.  But.....you find some random obscure article on the internet, believe it, and all of a sudden you're the intellectual.

You just did yesterday:dunno

Hahaha, pretty rich coming from the guy not sure how much humans are causing climate change or isn't convinced that Abbot or DeSantis aren't harming their constituents with their COVID policies.

 

Yesterday I accurately attacked the motivations of a far-right group who captured video of one idiotic teacher. Their goal is convince the political right that the Education system is a liberal brainwashing machine in order to sow distrust. This sort of anti-intellectual populism is dangerous. The pandemic is demonstrating that right now.
