Is it your position that everyone, to some extent, is subject to confirmation bias?

Does that include you?

 
Yes and yes.

I do my best to seek out further information before acting.  Nothing is foolproof however.

I answered your questions.

How about you ?

I saw this this morning and have been considering how to reply to this and I'm still not sure.

Yes, there are some very smart people here.  That does not mean that they are open minded though.  Confirmation bias is confirmation bias.  I see few people challenging the thinking of the far left side of the aisle other than me and a couple of others, despite the intelligence present here.  Rather I see dissent being ham handedly crushed by these smart people instead of being engaged in dialogue.

That we are now seeing discussions of the need for truth ministers no longer hidden in whispers and now on the front pages of the leading newspapers tells me that it is all but over.  The overwhelming support as demonstrated in many threads in this very forum shows me how far along we are towards this reality.  Ain't no one or nothing stopping it now.  The outlets for dissension and disagreement are nearly all closed down already.  When only one side tells you what to believe and what the "truth" is, it's over.  Big Brother has come out into the open and stood up and claimed it's power and position.

The wide spread belief, again as confirmed by simply reading the boards here, that only those of one side of the political aisle are subject to confirmation bias is truly amazing, to me, despite the presence of smart people here who should know otherwise.  Or think that they are too smart to fall victim to confirmation bias.  This and that truth is merely a perception, based upon observations that often times outright ignores facts or interprets facts differently.

Once again i'll offer this up.  I know that this has already been called a gaffe by Biden defenders.  I see it as a slip of the tongue and Biden actually saying what he means and believes.

The Coup We Are Not Talking About
We can have democracy, or we can have a surveillance society, but we cannot have both.
We live in the digital century during the formative years of information civilization. Our time is comparable to the early era of industrialization, when owners had all the power, their property rights privileged above all other considerations. The intolerable truth of our current condition is that America and most other liberal democracies have, so far, ceded the ownership and operation of all things digital to the political economics of private surveillance capital, which now vies with democracy over the fundamental rights and principles that will define our social order in this century.
