The Gullible Mind Explained

In light of the string of the blatant falsehoods being announced by the U.S. government these days (FDA, DHS, White House, etc.) it's interesting that so many people still believe whatever they are told by "official" sources. It brings up the question of the functioning of their brains: How could a person swallow official information so gullibly and so completely without even asking commonsense questions about the reliability or factual basis of that information?

These people, it turns out, are operating from what I called The Gullible Mind. It is a psychological processing malfunction that filters out information based on its source rather than its integrity. People who operate from The Gullible Mind tend to have misplaced trust in governments, institutions, mainstream news networks, doctors, scientists or anyone who wears the garb of apparent authority.'

  1. l think their operating from a lifetime spent on a brainfood diet of addiction to Big Macs and Big Whoppers with Fries and Coke, while at the same time, gourmandizing on sloppy fastfood news sauces serving them up more big whoppers to chew and swallow down their cakehole of a drainpipe, thats regurgitating and spewing up gullible crap from minus a working, thinking brain.
