Once upon a time Poe’s law was enough.
It stated that a significantly determined troll of subject X was impossible to tell apart from an actual believer in subject X unless they included a ;) or a sarc slash, or something similar.
And all was well and good.
But given the current state of the GOP and the world around us, we need a new law to describe the world around us.
I now Christen “Steven’s Law” (originally “Rush’s Law) but I think its new name fits it better.
Steven’s Law goes as follows…
“Once a person becomes significantly polarized, they can no longer tell fact from fiction by logical means. What supports their views is facts, what is detrimental to them is fiction.
This law is named after the fact that there are a shocking number of Republicans who still thing Steven Colbert is a Republicans.
You may now go back to your lives…
