    The Barnum or Forer effect is the tendency for people to judge that general, universally valid statements about personality are actually specific descriptions of their own personalities. A "universally valid" statement is one that is true of everyone—or, more likely, nearly everyone. It is not known why people tend to make such misjudgments, but the effect has been experimentally reproduced.

    The psychologist Paul Meehl named this fallacy "the P.T. Barnum effect" because Barnum built his circus and dime museum on the principle of having something for everyone. It is also called "the Forer effect" after its discoverer, the psychologist Bertram R. Forer, who modestly dubbed it "the fallacy of personal validation".

    Richard Spencer always seemed like a glowie. Something about him seems too 'Skull and Bones'.

    Finland has a greater Human Development Index than the USA. When adjusted for inequality (the inequality-adjusted Human Development Index), there is an even greater disparity.

    Louisiana is the third worst state in the USA in terms of income inequality.

    The USA homicide rate is more than 200% greater than Finland's (5.0 per 100,000 vs. 1.6). Lousiana's is nearly 900% greater (15.8 vs. 1.6).

    I don't believe that the Finnish net wealth values includes the value of its universal healthcare system.

    >> Here's a good background piece published last year from BuzzFeed's Otilla Steadman: "Conspiracy theories about sex trafficking and child abuse have been a core feature of the online fever swamp that bloomed under Trump, acting as a powerful recruitment tool and call to action..."
    Watching it become a "conspiracy theory" that elites are engaged in child sex trafficking, one which only people who like Trump would believe -- yes, there's something nefarious going on there.

    As for the rest of the article, when Disney execs literally talk about implementing a "not-at-all-secret gay agenda" in their children's programming, yeah, I think it's worth questioning why they're doing this, and who benefits.

    Just on the border of your waking mind,
    There lies another time
    Where darkness and light are one,
    And as you tread the halls of sanity
    You feel so glad to be unable to go beyond

    I have a message from another time.
