I don't think we find truth by using those who tell us what to think as resources. Real conspiracy is rooted out through hard work and searching in unlikely, but mainstream places. We don't see much of that anymore.
Facts are now selectable , there's a difference .
The tragedy for denialists is that they concede the argument in advance. Holocaust deniers’ attempts to deny that the Holocaust took place imply that it would not have been a good thing if it had. Climate change denialism is predicated on a similarly hidden acknowledgment that, if anthropogenic climate change were actually occurring, we would have to do something about it.
Denialism is therefore not just hard work – finding ways to discredit mountains of evidence is a tremendous labour – but also involves suppressing the expression of one’s desires. Denialists are “trapped” into byzantine modes of argument because they have few other options in pursuing their goals.
Facts are what the majority of people say they are. Woe unto he who experiences a different reality, regardless of its truth.
