Carnival of ignorance

A failure of education? A failure of science? A failure of empathy, and the ability to understand what you yourself do not directly perceive? The age of ignorance, where ignorance is considered a legitimate choice, celebrated with pride, shunning expertise and authority, in favour of alt-knowledge, alt-wisdom. Though nearly every family we personally know has now lost someone to the virus, still the proud dissenters who brand us “sheeple” claim the pandemic is not real: a mere apparition, made real only by the “mainstream media” and their co-conspirators. How did the carnival of ignorance go so mainstream, where once it was so fringe?
