The wedge is working. Millions of people believe in opposite things. People think other is brainwashed. I think all those people are being taken for a ride and the wedge is the goal. If people don’t come together it’s going to be bad.

Agree to some extent, but fact is fact , so its not like there’s no potential middle ground and certainly there’s sufficient agreement already to make a political difference. That is, arguably truth/reality already exists at a sufficient level, so the question of safety is really about what a disconnected minority might do. Still very concerning, but maybe not fatal to the country

It’s not about what is fact or not. It’s about what information is passed as fact or not and who decides what is fact or not. It’s also about what stories are highlighted vs not and then which ones are mocked vs not. People will be split on all that in this day and age and there is a deeper reason why that others are not understanding from the other and their is a genuine disconnect but I also feel like it is exaggerated to heat people up and this I believe is happening more and more. Bt controls what people see and don’t see. Highlighted comments about extreme views while other ones are pushed down, invisible or strait up deleted. Should not be happening. It’s a mess and it’s not a good ending. People are moving out of my liberal state because taxes are too high. The city is being destroyed and people (all races) tell me they are sad about what is happening to their city but they don’t want to say anything about it because the media says they would be racist or something. That’s not good.

Facts absolutely matter.

I agree with almost everything else you posted.

There is a group ON BOTH SIDES OF THE SPECTRUM who will always be willfully blind to facts. But the rest of the country just need to learn to be skeptical and/or educated CONSUMERS OF INFORMATION.

FACTS ARE FACTS. ITS A FACT THAT THE Biden meat story was false. That should make rational people pause on future stories, wait for a credible or multiple credible sources.

If you look at the worst bozos that post here, the ones who are CONSISTENTLY wrong about everything, their mistake — made over and over and over again – is that they make bold, definitive pronouncements based on almost no information, ALMOST ALWAYS FROM A QUESTIONABLE SOURCE.

They do so repeatedly because they think “I agree with that so it must be true.” Thats CONFIRMATION BIAS.

Sad state of affairs and definitely people profiting from the division but This too shall pass. Most people become more educated over time b

Was basically meaning that there isn’t enough credibility out there to have people know for sure what’s real and what’s not. Anything can be posted and we don’t know for sure what’s real or what’s not. I feel like most stories that are posted are chosen to be talked about for a reason. The wedge. While they might be facts and real they might be excluding facts or another story that should also be covered but they pick and choose about it and it’s not because of this story is more important to cover its because this will get the most buzz and will get the most reaction. We can’t be doing that even if that is the reason. I still belive in the wedge because there are millions divided and that shouldn’t happen. I believe most stories (while can be facts) still are put out to rage people and there can be a story that would show another pov but is ignored because it doesn’t fuel the wedge. People will say that is borderline conspiracy talk but what is wrong with that? People should not believe everything they are told. And people need to do their own research but I feel like people just are either too lazy to look and confirm for themselves(some just don’t like to be wrong and others have too much ego no way my side is wrong) or they just feel why would somebody lie to me which is a perfectly logical question to ask but there is plenty reason why they would lie. I feel this is a genuine problem that I think some are waking up to but I think some even turn blind eye on purpose.
