Description

How can you be sure that the things you know are true… are actually true? We have access to more information than any humans in history but we can't process it on our own. In fact, almost all of what we know comes from others. We come to rely on people and institutions to tell us what to believe and not to believe. And it turns out there are huge consequential differences in how Americans form those relationships, relationships which serve as the building blocks for how we shape our own views of the world. So what happens when someone tries to manipulate that trust? If you ask David Roberts, you need only look at the current conservative movement to get your answer.

Really excellent....Thank you for explaining all that! I've been struggling to understand how people who seem reasonable, good people are voting for the most ridiculous yet dangerous leader of all time.... Among all the other global madness going on!

This is a great conversation, but, Chris, you need to apply it to yourself. Quit fawning over Bernie. He is an unreconstructed 60's leftist powered by misogyny and white identity politics.

Kathleen Fuller Having Bernie on once in awhile doesn't = fawning over him.
