No matter what someone believes it's hard to ignore that a good portion of the population believes The Big Lie. People will simply disagree about what the Big Lie is. (Election was stolen/Election was not stolen - we were always at war with europa/we were never at war with europa)

We're in a post-truth point in this society, and post-truth is pre-fascism.

Things have gone totally post modern here. It's no longer about what is true.

What is true is now what people in power tell you is true.

The election was legitimate and *not stolen* only because of who has the power right now. Not because it's the truth.

Let me see if I can explain this better. The truth in this country, right now, is irrelevant. The only thing that matters is power. People in power dictate what is "true"

Because a significant portion of the population wants it that way. It feeds their alternate reality bubble, because in addition to being lied to, they're being validated and affirmed.

But it doesn't just affect them. It affects everyone now. We have to impose "truth" at gunpoint. The scary thing is, they will impose their "truth" at gunpoint and again, it comes down to power at the end of the day.

People are so divided that they can't even agree on what is objectively real.
Real programmers use butterflies
