The Dunning-Kruger effect can be observed during talent shows like American Idol.
The auditions are usually filled with a variety of good and bad singers. The ones who
are bad at it, almost never realize how bad they really are.

Low ability people do not possess the skills needed to recognize their own
incompetence or lack of knowledge. Their poor self-awareness leads them to
overestimate their own capabilities.

However when you become more knowledgeable about a certain topic, that
confidence falls. Only when you start to reach above average skill, is when the your
confidence about a certain topic starts to pick up again.

But why? Why does being less skilled make you more confident in your abilities

And the one or two people who should pay attention, won't!

The rumors of the death of irony have been apparently premature before now, but now it may have finally come to pass.

If not, surely unintentional irony remains the best kind.


The point of modern propaganda isn't only to misinform or push an agenda. It is to exhaust your critical thinking, to annihilate truth.

― Garry Kasparov

... the line separating good and evil passes not through states, nor between classes, nor between political parties either -- but right through every human heart -- and through all human hearts.

― Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn
