I forgot to mention in reply to Tito in regards to The Flat Earth Society and disinformation agents, that some are only in it for the money (I see these people as worse than the shills), but disinformation is a real thing. Ask yourself, who in this world has your best interests at heart? The answer for me is obviously me. I would hope we would all answer the same. So if you are going to decide something for yourself, you should take the time to research it thoroughly and reason it for yourself, rather than taking the word of someone else. Prove things to yourself, prove the claims that have been made to you are actually fact.
