Not because its allowed, its that the information is deemed irrelevant for the sheeple thats why it is given. If the sheep no longer bothers what the truth is then things that are considered conspiratorial are handed out, because the sheep will not bother protesting or revolting that they've been duped for a long time.MSM is finally allowed to say some of the things that were obvious to everyone months ago.
It's not much of a challenge because you did half the explanation. lol Yes. In the US, higher education trends with liberalism, which at the least has a general acknowledgement that one lives in a society instead of a bubble, and even goes further into things like social contracts and basic considerations for others existences. This is incredibly broad, but we've got an anecdote in the Northeast which is what I was speculating on. If you were implying that education=trusting mainstream news, I would counter that that's more like education=trusting science, which is what gets into the mainstream media more than QAnon bullshit like cellular signals can transmit physical virus particles.Ted, I'm going to challenge you on the higher education hypothesis. I don't see how higher education would correlate to public health practices (other than through political leanings, where people who go to college lean left and are more trusting of mainstream institutions).
Yes. And then you look at here in China where those things aren't "since elementary school". At the very beginning, I suspected the virus would spread here wildly because of the low hygiene standards. I didn't know the lockdown was coming or the very successful self-isolation campaign. While the majority of the population are not scientifically informed or even really care about science beyond new phone apps being made, and the thought style of Mainland Chinese and US Conservatives are incredibly similar, they are trained to follow authority. So, after the initial cover-up and spread, China (including the people) did exceptionally well just about eradicating the virus here. I saw and still see dumb shit like people pulling down their masks to sneeze (and I've written about this elsewhere, so I won't type it out again), but the 2-3 weeks of isolation really did nip it in the bud very effectively. Secondarily, the wide testing pulled the infected out of circulation.The kind of thinking needed to wear a mask and wash your hands is something a person should learn in elementary school. Beyond that, it's a matter of conscientiousness vs. selfishness, and how seriously a person takes the pandemic.
Yes.I suspect that with this thing spreading in bars and at parties, it's because people have chosen to not care, even though they should know better.
