Actually if you pinned me against a wall and put a gun to my head, I'd probably admit to being whatever you wanted me to be. And of course, putting a gun to my head is exactly what I'd expect from someone like you. Confirmation is a show about the gulf between beliefs that we can't talk across. About our knee-jerk dismissal of the opposing viewpoint. About the echo chamber of agreement and validation we live in. About the way we choose only to see the evidence that proves we're right.
