Time: Conspiracy to save the 2020 election
« on: February 06, 2021, 11:26:09 AM »

Quote
That’s why the participants want the secret history of the 2020 election told, even though it sounds like a paranoid fever dream–a well-funded cabal of powerful people, ranging across industries and ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer media coverage and control the flow of information. They were not rigging the election; they were fortifying it. And they believe the public needs to understand the system’s fragility in order to ensure that democracy in America endures.

Removing all barriers to vote fraud is now called fortifying democracy.

The wish not to believe can influence as strongly as the wish to believe.

Who can escape their own cognitive biases?

Sorry, I just allowed myself to be amazed, again  :facepalm: They want everyone to know that a coup went down, how it went down, and actually celebrate it. Look at how it is expected that you believe that powerful people "changing the rules, steering the media and controlling the flow of information" some how leads to good things.

Where the heck do these authors come from? How much do they personally profit from this nasty propaganda? How stoopid is the reading public supposed to be?

If people get the idea that participating in civil society by voting is meaningless then they'll participate in some other way.

I wonder if those who enabled this coup realize or care about that.

I am concerned about that myself.  I assume they think they have enough control.
