America is drowning in a cesspool of extremism. Suddenly, making wild claims, conspiracy theories and accusations no longer requires a shred of evidence. Politcal leaders, traditional media pundits and social media influencers have become emboldened enough to make things up and convince a significant, poorly educated percentage of population that their lie is true.
