Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Excellent diary on an important subject. Thanks.

My latest mantra de jour is that communication is dialogue: without dialogue it is propaganda. It is the dialogue about truth that is important, perhaps even more so than the truth itself.

There is a lot of misinformation out there, as you point out. But what we are witnessing is an exponential increase in the diversity of freely available information. The 'many truths' syndrome. Right now we are experiencing information divergence. Who knows, in a hundred years we might see information convergence? It certainly won't be next year, but it will happen.

Even that increasing divergence is on our side. Propagandists always seek to limit information and control the narrative. Little by little, the 'narrative' is being biodiversified, and that, to me, is a good thing.

You can't be me, I'm taken
