Illusions are certainly related to fakeology.
Today I declare the climate science “debate” to be mostly an illusion. You think you live in a world in which there are climate science skeptics on one side of the debate, and climate scientists, plus their believers, on the other side. And you think they are talking about the same thing. That isn’t what’s happening. It’s mostly an illusion.I mean this literally. You perceive a debate, but that is mostly a shared hallucination.
