Believing the cons

It saddens me to see how easily even the more intelligent among us fall prey to false news and obvious cons. I understand that people would like to believe the message they see or hear, but to so freely fall into lockstep with those who serve only their own agenda is certain to hurt our democracy in the long run. I see people quoting Donald Trump nonsense verbatim (e.g. “dishonest press”) and others who appear willing to dismiss the attack on our system by a murderous villain from Russia. Yet others attack the fact-checkers when they expose false news and cons.

What next for our increasingly divided country, a resurgence of the brown shirts?
