every ideology ever and confirmation bias

I could write a long post about confirmation bias and antiracism theory or feminism or any identitarian issue. But any elaboration would be gratuitous; all you need to know is that confirmation bias is the tendency to trust what you believe and doubt what you don't.

To be fair to identitarians, suffering from confirmation bias is just part of being human.

I was reminded of this by CultureLab: Bias rules the way we judge the world.
