A bunch of hypocritical virtual signalling “know it all’s”.

Remember this next time they prattle on about carbon dioxide emissions.

Incentives create a type of behavior. If you want to achieve something which requires influencing public opinion then you create think tanks, grass root’s organizations, facts & figures. You stigmatize, engage in lawfare and personalize attacks. You seek to reward those espousing the cause and cause harm to those who stand against it. This of course includes spreading lies and disinformation. It’s a standard modus operandi which cuts across subject areas. This is why you have to be skeptical when examining data and theories of the world.  Data and theories of the world are the building blocks of your cognitive frameworks and mental models. These in turn shape your understanding and actions.

Anti-Government Phobia (AGP) differs from most mental illnesses, however, in that it is highly infectious and has an acute onset.
