I cannot believe we are debating Coronavirus

Is it just me, or does the world have a problem with facts? Especially America! What is going through your heads that you believe Trump has said ANYTHING EVEN REMOTELY FACTUAL about Coronavirus? We get all the news from you, all the time. We know what's happening in your country more than some of you 🤪.I'm quite concerned.

Sadly, I have to agree that nearly half of the U.S. has gone batshit crazy. However, don't, please, turn on the rest of the U.S.! We are fighting TWO viruses, Carona19 AND TDS. We are on the verge of curing the latter, (hopefully N.Y. and a few other states and countries will finish that project)! The former is also in a more hopeful place.

We have had too much intensity on "personal freedoms" now for several years (generations, really), and we have to get back to reality! President Eisenhower put our problem in a nutshell when he said: "People who place their freedoms above their principles soon lose both." That's our problem, too many feel THEY should be free to do whatever they want, fuck the next guy! Yep, batshit crazy.

We have a chance, now, to get America back. We need encouragement, not criticism. This is likely our LAST chance and if we don't succeed, the rest of the world will also suffer. Authoritarianism will win.

I think that's a pretty accurate assessment, although I'm unfortunately very pessimistic. I don't see how 74 million people can be de-programmed. Especially when part of their programming is always to believe they are right. We are looking at successive generations which have fallen victim to propaganda, so those generations reinforce their own bias with each other. Sons with fathers, mother with daughters and uncles with nephews.

No, the world is going crazy because some people are listening to the toddler Trump instead of listening to the thousands of qualified professionals in their field both in and out of America.

It's true, now I'll like to make an example, those who their family members or loved ones have died from the Coronavirus believe it's real and you can't tell them any different but those that are yet to experience it will keep saying it's fake. I don't just get why people prefer listening to what they want to hear than facts they're listening to Trump because he's telling them what they want to hear not because he's right.

That's exactly the problem. They want to stay in their own little safety bubble so they refuse to listen and understand what they don't want to hear. It's basically either intentional ignorance or confirmation bias.

I'll give you the short answer. Capitalism and Christianity.

What these ideologies have done is provide a reward structure for the emotional side of the brain, at the expense and neglect of the rational side. What we are seeing are the results of the emotional side of the brain dominating the rational side.

Exactly, they're not paying any attention to the rational part of the brain telling them the truth rather listening to the emotional side but deep down they know it's real

Yet those on the left use more emotional appeals and are convinced more by emotional arguments. You're claim couldn't be more untrue, and in fact is dead wrong. You're history of being dumber than a used condom would explain that.

Definitely not just you. America has gone crazy. Their system is falling apart. Hell, half of them thought Donald Trump was the answer, so what does that tell you?

I believe that Trump is the one leading them astray so even when he claimed the election was a fraud, I was shocked beyond control to see some people believe and still fight for him even after all he had done. When will people learn?!!!

He's making bank from it too. Millions of dollars are being collected for his bogus claims, which he get's to keep.

Never underestimate the depth of human stupidity my friend. It is like a bottomless pit. Even now, as Trump works to undermine and dismantle democracy at every possible juncture, these idiots are chanting about freedom.
