Facebook has made news recently in announcing efforts to kill fake news from its website. However noble its intentions are, they will not only fail to kill off fake news, but will make the problem worse.
I can see very clearly now how this all works, having participated in it for the first time. I am motivated, at lease subliminally, to change what I say, now that I am getting paid for it, even if the amount I am getting paid is pretty paltry (but hey, it will likely pay for my golf cart upgrades!).
As I've noted time and again, you can believe in fantasy is all you want, but it's like pulling back on a rubber band. The more you believe in fantastical thinking, the further back you are pulling this rubber band. And when it snaps back it'll hurt that much more.
