To the Editor:
Of course, Mr. Rose and other right wingers will dismiss this out-of-hand because it is based on facts, which is not what they wish to hear. A vast body of scientific research and literature explains this phenomenon, of people believing what they wish to believe, not what is true. This is what is destroying our country.
A prime example is the recent attempt to overthrow the government and install the defeated former-President for a second-term. The insurrection was built on a big lie – one of many told by the would-be dictator. The country will not survive that, if it persists.
The point extends far beyond Mr. Rose, to the tens of millions of so-called “conservative Republicans” who think as he does. They yell and scream that only their vision can save the country but in point of fact, they are destroying it. No country can long survive if it abandons the facts.
