    Do you believe that social media and the news is influencing people's opinions?

    Everything that is going on the world right now as far as hate and insubordination, do you believe that it is influenced and provoked? We are literally being fed all of this negativity and being rerouted to anger. If we wanted the world to be a better place, shouldn't we be provoking to see the good in people as an example instead of chopping up reality to make us rage? Just a thought.

    There is a definite liberal bias, and it is becoming more severe in both how stories are reported and the outright censorship of stories not reported by media and silencing of content that doesn't fit the liberal agenda.

    It's not influencing people's opinions as much as it's reinforcing them.

    The Internet let's you exist in a little echo-chamber, where you can filter out anything you don't want to hear. As a result, people aren't generally exposed to views and opinions that are different from their own, and that's the real danger.

      Very true. I have this undying passion for peace. Money is too powerful in this world. Broken promises have become the norm. Life alone, is hard enough. We are supposed to love and share.

    The country is filled with followers and like a herd of cattle or sheep they follow the one in front of them.
    They don't know why, and they don't ask why, they just do it.
    I hear people parroting opinions from cable news everyday. Cable news is like their gospel, and they must go out into world and spread it.

    Loyal party voters are also controlled by their party, and their party views.

    Sheeple are the most populace in the country.
