The simple lie.

i've come to the conclusion that if given 2 narratives, then a lot of people are willing to accept as truth the one they understand more easily, even if it is a lie.

ill give some examples, some may be hyperbolic, but i think they make sense. 1/
Complex Truth: The universe as we know it started with a small singularity, then inflated over the next 13.8 billion years to the cosmos that we know today.

Simple Lie: The Earth is 6,000 years old. 2/
Complex Truth: The Russians interfered in order to increase political instability in the United States and to damage Hillary Clinton by bolstering the candidacies of Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders and Jill Stein. It was a multi-faceted attack.

Simple Lie: Witch Hunt 3/
Complex Truth: There are an estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States, and the question of what to do with them has sparked years of fierce debate.

Simple Lie: Mexico will pay for the wall. 4/
Complex Truth: Comparative advantage and specialization play an important role in every trade relationship.

Simple Lie: We lose 800 billion on trade, every year. 5/
Complex Truth: Trump has topped 3,000 lies in just 466 days in office. His lies are so varying and broad that they are threatening the fabric of reality and are used to attack all branches of the government and media in an authoritarian fashion.

Simple Lie: Fake News. 6/
I could go on and on, but i won't, i think this is enough to get my point across.
