“In a democracy, mass opinion creates power. Power diverts funds to
the manufacturers of opinion, who manufacture more, etc. […] This
feedback loop generates a playing field on which the most competitive
ideas are not those which best correspond to reality, but those which
produce the strongest feedback.”
— Mencius Moldbug
