YES, YES, YES. Our country needs to address the issue of willful disinformation distribution and dissemination. We have too many flat_earthers convinced by disinformation sites. The fact that QAnon and mass media outlets provide such a powerful basis for foreign influence means that we have to rethink aspects of how to diminish their impact. Russians have for years been working to disrupt western democracies with disinformation - with the intent of presenting so many ‘alternative’ facts and false narratives that the public becomes divided and has difficulty sorting fact from fiction. In our media-centric society, we are increasingly dominated by sound bites and news snippets instead of our own deeper thought processes to tie the nuggets of truth together- that is what the Russians and other foreign adversaries can exploit to disrupt our society. QAnon, other ‘deep-state conspiracy’ and even our own president provides platforms from which our adversaries can find ways to divide us. … … … Somehow, and this is a difficult problem to address, the distinction between ‘freedom of speech’ and ‘freedom to lie and mislead’ needs to be sorted out. The pace of of information flow in today’s world allows a simple lie steeped in circular logic to rapidly spread into a firestorm of lies and there is no ‘fire department’ available to keep the spread of wild-ass disinformation under control. This is why the Russian (and other) disinformation campaigns are so effective in disrupting western democracies. Further, there have been examples of otherwise normal people being so misled by QAnon conspiracies that they chose armed confrontation of supposed wrong doers to ‘save our children’. Willfull disinformation has consequences that our society will have to find some way to suppress while preserving the right of free speech to have opinions based on facts and plausible conjecture.
