The danger of ‘groupthink’

(not my work; author unknown)

These election conspiracy theories are the 2020 equivalent of the Salem Witch Hunt. “Oh, the dog died?” “Yes, it ate some hemlock in the woods.” “NOoooOOoo… the dog died because…… YOU ARE A WITCH!” “No, really — it ate some hemlock. Here’s a leaf in its mouth.”. NOooOooooo… YOU ARE A WITCH!”. And on and on, ultimately ending with the ‘witch’ being burned alive or drowned. See how that works?
