I Knew I’d Disagree With It. That’s Why I Read It

To me, it would be the height of intellectual stagnation to follow only the websites, news sources, books, magazines, radio stations, podcasts, or political commentators that I know in advance I’ll agree with. People have fallen into the intellectual trap of confirmation bias to the point that they will only believe the “news” that they want to be true. Then they repost it on whatever echo chamber is their social media of choice, for the people who already think exactly like they do.
