That's why I say we need to see our own "confirmation bias" as vulnerable.

In this day and age of deep fakes and misinformation etc. we must be diligent and more precise. The MAGA's and other extremists do not attack the substance of messages they disagree with, they attack the messenger and sources for any weaknesses. Then the noise negates the message.

I totally agree with the quote. We have almost all used and recommended it multiple times here over the years. Sinclair Lewis COULD have said it; so could many other great "thought leaders" from the left. Historians, giants of sociology, poets, topical writers too.
