Every single person reading this blog has access to more true information than anyone at anytime in human history. Yet far from converging on facts and values, western democratic societies seem to be splitting into separate tribes. We don’t just have different opinions, we have completely different sets of facts. We are trying to find a shared identity, when we don’t even have a shared reality. Society is becoming like a book club where no one has read the same book.
Fact in the Head is a my attempt to understand the psychology behind post-truth and polarisation.
