yeah it's tough. Do I trust big tech to be the arbiters of the truth? No. Clearly a liberal bias in media and tech. Definitely have been colossal missteps from the "experts" as well- flip-flopping on masks, lab leak hypothesis etc. Do I think decentralization will lead us further into flat-earth territory shitholes of Facebook style misinformation? yes.
As someone who is dead center politically I find I just hate everyone.
You're being too hard on yourself, lol.
Quality information is everyone's personal responsibility, whether they realize it or not. Decentralization doesn't guarantee perfection -- there's no such thing -- but it does encourage individuals to sharpen their swords of information literacy instead of asking to be properly spoon fed. This is the only way to have a truly resilient society -- and the current situation regarding COVID, vaccines, and censorship should be a testament to that.
