Echo chambers

Echo chambers, confirmation bias, whatever you want to call it… when people go searching for truth but only consult sources that will agree with their opinions, the result isn’t going to be a surprise. How do we get out of this? I think by engaging in thoughtful conversation with people who don’t agree with you on everything you’re wondering about. Is that easy? Surely not. In fact, sometimes it’s repulsive. But it’s important. Or at least I think so.
