Investor's Buisness Daily: Empower yourself through Confirmation Bias!

Are you an intelligent and well-educated individual? Do you listen to what the opposition has to say and consider the merits instead of reducing it into a oversimplified and crude caricature with little to no concern about whether or not said caricature is even an accurate portrayal. Are you not afraid of higher education? Do you not stereotype your political opponents? Most importantly, do you see the previous things as bad rather than good.

Then you need to check out Investor's Business Daily. Why waste time actually getting to know about the opponent's side of an argument when you can just make assumptions about them based on poorly drawn cartoons and extremely biased op-ed articles. Stop being so dependent on things like education and research and start experiencing the empowering effects of willful ignorance and confirmation bias. Marvel at how much easier it is to make straw men out of the other person's arguments rather than debating them!

A small sample of the political cartoons can be found here: Remember, if you encounter someone who disagrees with your opinion, they're not only wrong, they're stupid and/or evil. Also remember that if these people do a bad thing, it's only bad because they did it. If you do the exact same thing, it's not wrong at all because…er…um…uh…yeah, we'll get back to you on that.

It's time to stop feeling like you may be wrong about something and start assuming that you can never be wrong about anything. What are you waiting for? Get your daily dose of fact-free empowerment at Investor's Business Daily now!
