Problem → reaction → “solution”
The evil masterminds know that the world needs victims, and thus take advantage of public outrage to introduce “solutions” that would otherwise have never been accepted.
This is often done thru false dichotomies, such as the nonsensical left-right & liberal-conservative divisions, and, more recently, the Ukraine-wins-or-Europe-conquered blatherskite. But our world is one of gradients and differences in degree.
It’s time to pop filter bubbles and hold everyone accountable.
