Brief flash of insight.

I've been reading Network Propaganda by Yochai Benkler et al. They describe a media that operates with a "reality check dynamic:" there's a balance between information that confirms our beliefs (comfortable) and information that counters our beliefs (uncomfortable).

Those who can't handle intellectual discomfort are more vulnerable to propaganda. Maybe we need to make "information stoicism" more of a habit.
