    Yes, given that the first post mentions the translation of the Bible into English, you are probably correct.

Or they read conspiracy theories about the Illuminati Jewish conspiracy and in a weird way it makes them feel safe because they have a handle on the chaos of the world and can surround themselves with like minded people. They've got a handle on things and have the strength of perceived numbers.
    I think that's fairly typical though, not internet specific. If you're joe schmo in some midwest town in 1950, you're going to usually agree with the mindset and popular consensus of that town in that point in time. This is how mass panics happen - a small community gets ahold of information that doesn't match their status quo and all hell breaks lose. I'm in the minority but I think even if you engage in an internet echo chamber you STILL have access to more information than a typical town square discussion. If you're open to it, thats your own business, but all you have to do is read the comment section of any article to be exposed to a 300 different opinions. It's just less confrontational than the town square scenario, so most default to what they're exposed to.

    This is something I would never recommend to anybody. Every time I zone out and make the mistake of reading comments I always end up hating humanity and myself.

    omg no i love the comment section, 9/10 it contains fascinating information about where someone is socially, culturally, and mentally. I love it. It can be maddening but i love it.
