How to Repair the American Mind: Solving America’s Cognitive Crisis

$1:
What is the great lesson of 2020? A pandemic killed hundreds of thousands of people and ravaged economies while people disagreed on basic facts. Conspiracy beliefs ran amok. Unscientific racism surged on social media. Medical quackery enjoyed a boom year. What was the common thread that ran through all of it? What should we have learned from such an extraordinarily eventful year?

The crucial ever-present factor in 2020 was critical thinking. Those who thought well were less likely to tumble into the rabbit holes of thinking QAnon is true, COVID-19 is a hoax, 5G towers help spread the virus, racism is scientific, hydroxychloroquine cures COVID-19, demon sperm is a problem, tracking devices are in vaccines, there is mass election fraud, etc. The ability and willingness to lean toward evidence and logic rather than side with blind trust and emotion was the key metric behind the madness. We may view the current year, 2021, as the test to see if we were paying attention in 2020. So far, it doesn’t look good.

The only future hope, and not just for Americans either, is when genetic engineering advances far enough that mental & emotional illnesses rooted in the DNA can be fixed in-vitro before a child is even born. I can't think of anything else at all that would be effective in countering the non-stop epidemic of insanity that occurs whenever fake news & disinformation takes their hideous toll on all the diseased and unbalanced and hyper-reactive brains out there.

Meh, why not. A real superman can't be any worse than all the pretend ones in government and business have turned out to be. 8)

It would be easier to ban Fox News and all other propaganda news networks like OANN, Newsmax and Sinclair.

Doing that would also prove them right, to the reality challenged.

Nothing to see here, at least nothing real

Alert... viewing Fox News has been shown to reduce critical thinking skills, consume at your own risk

This is you on For News...
