There are people that believe the Earth is flat, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Modern_flat_Earth_societies
This feels very strange, it is hard to prove ghosts or witches are not real but this one, it is obvious that is false. My question is what could motivate this people to consume so much energy in supporting this fake idea and at the same time motivating in theyr minds that from thousands of years there is a conspiracy to hide the truth.
What I think is that this people are not that good at critical thinking, not that smart and believing this idea makes them in their mind part of the small society of enlighten people that see the truth. Some say that religion could motivate this idea but priests do not agree with this.

Do you think school could do better teaching people to think or this is something parents should train children even before going to school.

@tony57 I agree with you, I am avoiding bringing climate change topics here or clean coal because it could get ugly, I do not want to appear rude but the truth is so obvious, you burn coal you get CO2 even if the coal is pure or clean, same with flat earth, you have a friend in other country, for you it is the middle of the day for him is the middle of the night, so all seems obvious until some other reason makes someone to consume a lot of effort denying the obvious truth.

Microsoft it tries to trick you to install their own applications, it also enables a lot of tracking and if you disable the tracking some updates re-enable it "by mistake" (in Windows 10 at least), I work in present as web developer and Chrome and Firefox are the best, Safari also is good on Mac laptops because it eats less battery.
Microsoft tools were most of the time bad, people always used a different music,video, picture, text editor applications.2

It is very hard to hack someone computer directly, if you are using an updated Windows.Linux or Mac and your browser is also updated you are safe, you just have to never download or install things that you do not know what they are, you can get tricked to download and install bad things so don't do it if you are not sure. Also do your Windows/Linux updates , those fix important problems, don't use Windows XP use 7 or newer.

You have more chances to get "hacked" by social engineering. this means that instead of creating a very complex,hard program to get inside your computer to steal your data the bad guys will trick you to give it to them yourself, example : someone calls you and tell you that they are from Microsoft and you have a virus and you must install a program, they will guide you to install it, this is obvious a scammer since Microsoft or other companies don't care about your computer virus. You can get fake emails that seem to be from your bank or google or maybe your phone company, they will give you a lnk to click and login, the link will open into a fake page that is identical to the real bank page and you enter your real password there, the solution is to never click on links in your email, if you need to do something on your bank website go directly in the browser and navigate to your bank, also verify the url in the browser top bar that it is in face the real site and not a different one with a similar name.
This days most haks happen by tricking people by email or by phone.

I think people from rich country have a prejudice about people on poor countries, this is reinforced by the people that try to scam or hack you, Everyone has his prejudices and biases so we all need to force ourselves to keep an open mind and not get stuck in our own bubble,

We have a bush with dark red roses, my grandmother was making juice from the petals(this rose petals are full of a nice aroma), but we did not made juice from roses in many years but each time I smell that flower I remember my grandmother. I like the other roses we have but those are not special.

I think it would be impossible to have same guns law in USA as in EU, the culture is different there, so probably reducing the number of big,automatic guns, introducing better checks for people that want guns,.
In a way is like cigarettes, they are bad for the users and for the others but since so many people are smoking you can't forbid them, you have to educate people not to smoke, then have strict rules where you can smoke , step by step , until the problem is fixed.

My opinion is that antivaccine people are bad informed tricked to think vaccines are bad and some plant or special water is better. There is science behind this and there are many countries that do the vaccines so the idea that this are done only for profit is idiotic.
The flu is not such a problematic virus if you are healthy but there are many other vaccines that are life saving for children, just doing some basic research on a scientific channel and not on Facebook or crap TV channels would solve the dilemma, this topic is not like religion, this is science, there are studies, numbers.facts

I was reading a few days ago about a guy that went to prison because he had a pocket knife, https://www.villagevoice.com/2014/10/07/how-a-50s-era-new-york-knife-law-has-landed-thousands-in-jail/

I think a solution would need to also include limiting people access to only small hand guns, hunting rifles only for people that are in a hunting association but I have no idea if the constitution of USA allows this or not(but since is illegal to own explosives, radioactive materials and other kind of dangerous stuff I think it can be done)
