“echo-chamber”

We should always be aware of our echo-chamber and take it into consideration.

Unlike everybody else!

Both Environment and Genetic Makeup Influence Behavior

Viking Life Blog – for the freethinker

An echo chamber is “an environment where a person only encounters information or opinions that reflect and reinforce their own.

In discussions of news media, an echo chamber refers to situations in which beliefs are amplified or reinforced by communication and repetition inside a closed system and insulated from rebuttal. By participating in an echo chamber, people are able to seek out information that reinforces their existing views without encountering opposing views, potentially resulting in an unintended exercise in confirmation bias. Echo chambers may increase social and political polarization and extremism. The term is a metaphor based on an acoustic echo chamber, in which sounds reverberate in a hollow enclosure. Another emerging term for this echoing and homogenizing effect within social media communities on the Internet is cultural tribalism. Many scholars note the effects that echo chambers can potentially have on citizens’ stances and viewpoints, and specifically implications has for politics. However, some studies have suggested that the effects of echo chambers are weaker than often assumed.

  1. Theres a difference between blindly following the brain-pollution versus freely thinking. You could have all your sources originate from newsites that are completely the opposite of your own weltanschauung, though that doesn’t mean you’ll convert to the other side. Those who stand for nothing will fall for everything. Better to have a cause to live for than to be an aimless thrall thrown in the wind of the trivial and aimless.

      You are absolutely right.
      Imagine being me, going to Twitter and YouTube a few years ago or to places like Gab now. Then say real pro-White things like Denmark for the Danes, Poland is Europe’s Mexico. That’s ‘echo chambers’ and ‘save-spaces’ hysteria right there, from people who believe there ‘based’ and ‘edge’ and who writes about White homelands and 1488.

      • Its good to branch out into uncharted territory even if most of the folks around may be antagonistic to your way of thinking. Someone has to rock the boat before the boat falls off the cliff.

        I agree. It can be more fruitful to crash the echo chambers, than just share views and information that valid the views people already have. We already know that Arabs and Africans do alot of crime, welfare fraud, terror, etc..
