Description

Important decisions are largely being made through influence by the powerful and for their own selective interests, rather rational deliberative processes designed to maximize the common good.

This is due in large part to issue #106, "authoritarian followership", i.e. the willingness of many people to have others make their decisions for them, combined with the ease of spreading false information (issue #108).

Note that there may be layers of indirection. For example, someone may appear to be making up their mind based on a reasonable interpretation of the facts they understand, but those facts have themselves not been examined critically and are in fact false.
