Team Loyalty

Most people have a naïve approach to politics. They pick a team e.g. Democrat, Republican, Christian, Muslim… and from then on ignore all evidence. They presume their team can do no wrong and the other teams can do no right. They carefully avoid researching facts for themselves. They are mindless sheep afraid ever to say anything that might offend the self-esteem of fellow team members, no matter how obviously true it is. This herd think is how Nazis were able to maintain the illusion they were the good guys.
