“People who think that they have big brains more often only have big mouths”
Someone once said this. And how true it is.
Just look around, especially in that “new” reality that is called the internet and its social media.
It is not so much what they say, but how. And the charisma-personality complex surrounding their words, claims, assertions, knowledge, and truths.
And then the cultish following can only grow until it becomes a sect.
Plenty of examples. Can you find some?
