Regarding my article Conspiracy in the Pub becomes talking point (Echo, 20 January). How can we avoid falling foul of the growing tsunami of psychologically-weaponised disinformation, without resorting to censorship and de-platforming?
I value and celebrate our community, The Echo, and those debating this critical challenge of our age, whatever their viewpoints – contributing to solutions grounded in truth, compassion, justice and sustainability.
In my article the diagnosis of ‘malignant narcissist’ was quoted from The Cult of Trump: A Leading Cult Expert Explains How the President Uses Mind Control, by ex-moonie, Steven Hassan. It is not a moral judgment. The Echo online provides further article citations. Also a correction: Propaganda, not Engineering Consent, was published in 1928, thanks Jason!
