Why?

A farmer has to wait until his crop has grown before he finds that he's don
e something wrong. Children in class react rather faster.

In Australia the business of getting farmers to take advantage of new scien
tific discoveries came to the attention of the Commonwealth Scientific and  
Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) and they ended up paying a sociolo
gist to look into it.

The study came up with a couple of useful results - the main one being that
 most farmers only take other farmers seriously. The practical result was t
hat if CSIRO wanted to get farmer to adopt a new technique (fertiliser, her
bicide, insecticide) they went through the farming community until they fou
nd farmers who would take them seriously, and concentrated their attention  
on them.

When those farmers started making money out of the new technique, the other
 farmers would start copying them - usually rather cautiously.

Yep.  Walking the Senate office building during the O-saster years,
the halls were filled with skinny white 24-year old lawyers who'd never
held a hammer, writing laws and regulations for all the people who make
a living at it.

Cheers,

Writing regulations is a different skill from wielding a hammer.

James Arthur clearly wants the regulations written in a way that lets his f
riends make more money, as opposed to stopping greedy businessmen from cutt
ing corners and endangering the health and safety of the public.

Apparently the Republican party is deeply split between those representativ
es who have really safe seats, who are correspondingly enthusiastic about b
uttering up wealthy businessmen, and those representatives who can't risk a
lienating voters by endangering them.

Trump is now buddying up with the Democrats, who are a more coherent group.

Yet neither type of occupation provides more insight into discriminating  
fake news where there is little feedback unless you dig around a little bit  
and apply reasoning.  Which of your two groups is more likely to do that?

Not sure how you came to that conclusion. Must be those alternative facts r
earing its ugly head again.

Can you provide examples of fake news that liberals fall for?

Re: Interesting study about fake news
One of my friends is more-or-less a typical liberal, I suppose.  But he owns  
a gun.

But, he has good reason to, living in the dangerous part of the city.  He  
has an interest in critical thinking, and not in conspiracy theories.

It's manifestly clear that, what passes for modern "conservativism", is  
mostly fear mongering, and actually nothing about being fiscally  
conservative or shrinking government.

Their actual actions are as politically liberal as anyone else's, just more  
for defense and business than for workers and the people.

It's a really poor name choice at this point, but we're stuck with the  
historical continuity of the grouping...

If he owns the gun because he thinks it makes him safe, it is not very good  
at critical thinking.  Better he should move.  A gun won't keep you safe  
just like a mote of alligators won't keep you safe.

I can't argue with that.

That would be one thing, but moving costs more than a gun.

But it would actually be effective rather than merely comforting while  
increasing the danger.
