“Sometimes people hold a core belief that is very strong,” Fanon wrote in “Black Skin, White Masks.” “When they are presented with evidence that works against that belief, the new evidence cannot be accepted. It would create a feeling that is extremely uncomfortable, called cognitive dissonance. And because it is so important to protect the core belief, they will rationalize, ignore and even deny anything that doesn’t fit in with the core belief.”
- This is from Chris Hedges' piece called "Colonized by Corporations" which I posted earlier today. In the above quote he refers to Fanon. It's sounds similar to what I went through when I first discovered this forum.
