YouTube’s algorithm…I mean yes this is about flat-earthers, and we all like to laugh about them, but something has to be said about the fact that conspiracy theories are spread so easily to impressionable youth at a GLOBAL scale. And its not just flat-earthers, it’s Naziism, it’s anti-Semitism, islamophobia, it’s all the terrible radicalization that is happening. It’s all connected, and it’s so so easy to become radicalized because of YouTubes algorithm.
and all this is on top of children recieving less or no education. they become adults who have no sense of history or critical thinking that should combat the willingness to “beleive” conspiracy theories. or worse, they learn bad science or non at all, and are taught a skewed version of hiatory that sets them down a path of delusion.
