I had just read a interesting thread on accelerationism. In short, they believe that society is bound to break and they are just here to speed it up so we can get through it. When they commit the heinous killings, both sides immediately check to see if the person is left or right leaning. We […]Read More Identifying the Polarization
One of the biggest problems I am currently seeing from social media is the radicalization from fake news. If you have read some of my first posts on here, although strange, they dealt with confirmation bias as a whole.
