How did we get here?

With the abundance of information available to even the most average individual, you’d expect that we would have generated a better informed public.

Instead, it seems to breed apathy.

Simple, neglectful indifference by average punters to fact check any claims they are exposed to creates the kind of fertile crass ignorance that can be plowed by politicians & campaigners to grow messages that feed distorted, simplistic stereotypes that are consumed by a public seeking their own self-interests & bias confirmations.

Because they assume that someone else is keeping them honest.
