The problem with TikTok

Post by tamada » June 9, 2024, 4:09 am

After a blether with chap at work who brought up Zionist conspiracy theories and the New World Order, I went looking for more on the who, why and wherefores of America's current struggle with TikTok. Now I have an idea of where he's coming from (even though I'm not sure if he does).

There are a lot around like your workmate. There is no point attempting to have an intelligent conversation with these types. We all have a tendency to readily accept information that aligns with our prevailing attitudes, but most of us are willing to shift our view if presented with credible evidence that flips our views on its ear.

Conspiracy theorists, the extreme left the extreme right and some outright stupid people do not have the ability to accept any evidence that goes against their prevailing view. They simply refuse to believe anything that rocks their boat.
It baffles me that people are so closed minded. Plenty on here fit that description.

Totally agree! Closed-minded people can be really frustrating.
