Great read – really fascinated by this. I recently read ‘The Righteous Mind’ by Jonathon Haidt about how people form their political views and one thing he said that stood out was we are more like politicians looking for votes than scientists looking for truth when we form our views-that we intuitively believe what we do and then focus on things that reinforce it, the ‘echo chamber’ as you wrote.
