There are days when we all feel that the World is a pretty bad place, that nobody cares about other people and that it's only getting worse.

It is not that people are looking for evidence and then look at the evidence themselves, it’s that people are looking for opinions that confirm their already existing suspicions or preconceived notions. That is called Confirmation Bias.Read More
