As the number of factcheckers goes up, the number of people thinking for themselves seems to go down at the same rate, amirite?

The number of people thinking for themselves I think is going up. The problem is their way of thinking is not structured in a way that is going to lead them to a right answer.

Hey OP u misspelled "Fascist" in your name. Have a good day!
