The human mind is not readily disposed to accepting facts as they are, which explains election deniers and QAnon believes. Our belief systems have great power in determining how we assess reality, and phenomena such as cognitive dissonance, confirmation bias and consensual validation determine what facts we accept and what facts we might disregard or manipulate. The mind is always in the process of framing, that is, giving meaning to the events before us so that they fit in with our belief system. All these things make possible for people to steadfastly believe in QAnon, a stolen presidential election and conspiracy theories. Our guest, Andrew Solovey, explains why.
