You’re going to face a tsunami of disinformation again this election cycle, experts warn

Westlake Legal Group CqOC-V0bozVwJOhK6aHkPQ_y--RvhSUWUlDdVMmN3iQ You're going to face a tsunami of disinformation again this election cycle, experts warn r/politics

You’re already being subjected to it.

Before you go “well I’m well informed and propaganda won’t work on me,” you should take a step back and think about the scope of the CA/FB leaks. Millions on millions of data points. They may not know you, but they’ve studied enough people like you to know what makes you angry, what messages you’ll amplify without question, and what excites you.

The messaging they push on you isn’t necessarily even intended for you. It’s about getting you to share not just ideas and facts, but specific framing and narratives they want you to advance. Even if the information can be determined to be false, the framing often remains. The “both sides” framing of 2016 is a classic example of this, a message they knew wasn’t necessarily going to keep Sanders voters home or make them vote for Trump but instead would be heard by less engaged people to make them feel their vote wouldn’t make a difference.

They don’t favor or push a particular candidate because they inherently agree with them, they do these things to sow division and chaos. So think about the narratives that something pushes, and remember that no matter our differences on the left we generally want the same things but have different strategies to get there. Just because someone disagrees with a certain approach doesn’t mean they’re acting in bad faith.

Sanders reveals free childcare plan for preschoolers

Westlake Legal Group T76BuTJyanaDcZdX0ZxKe_Cjvw8yPKpf9KIzRTdcl1Y Sanders reveals free childcare plan for preschoolers r/politics

I was talking to my brother and his wife about this. They are both moderate Democrats that support Buttigieg. They have 2 kids under six and they were complaining about the cost of childcare and how burdensome it is for them (they are working class). I told them they should support Sanders or Warren since they support free childcare.

My brother and his wife were aggressively against it because they didn’t want to pay more in taxes. I explained that if their taxes did go up, their childcare costs would go down to zero, so they would be saving money.

They then pivoted to the argument that once their kids are in school, they won’t need childcare and they don’t want to have to keep paying the taxes if they aren’t getting the benefits. Once I pointed out that they are paying taxes for public schools right now even though their kids aren’t in school, they just got mad and said they don’t want socialism.

This is what we are dealing with. The people that stand to benefit the most from Bernie’s policies have convinced themselves it would somehow be bad for them.
