And that type of conflict reveals an interesting issue: Viral Propaganda Theory and Swarm Theory don’t always produce the right result. Opinion is not an authority, no matter how overwhelming it may be. In other words, though all the people in the world might hold a belief, the belief may still contradict reality. There was a time, for example, when people believed the Earth was at the center of the universe. Science teaches us that is not physically the case, although spiritually it remains the center of our existence (and the universe as we know it).
