In a comment at The Politically Incorrect Australian, I wrote:
I believe that it is our deep assumptions that are insane, not the surface 'facts'.
(This is actually the way that delusional psychosis mostly works - although there may also be false observations, i.e. hallucinations. Most of the false ideas come from how shared-common data are interpreted.)
So it is the false assumption that groups of men, women, Europeans, African Americans all have 100% identical intelligence ('g') and personality traits; so that people then assume that any and all facts of different accomplishment 'must' be due to irrational prejudice and discrimination (even if that p&d is pretty much invisible).
Even with Anthropogenic CO2-driven global warming; the underlying problem is the false assumptions that 'scientists' can 1. predict and 2. control global climate - when there isn't a shred of a reason to assume that either of these are true (and, in contrast, a zillion reasons to believe that we 1. do not know what will be the future of earth's climate, and 2. could not control it if we did).
So, the problem is much deeper than 'noticing' - because our false/ incoherent assumptions mean even when people do notice, it makes no difference to their understanding.
The Major Issues we are fed by the mass-social media are indeed a distraction; but with nearly all the population plugged-in and addicted 24/7; any specific distractions are overwhelmed by the sheer vast torrent of 'stuff' that takes precedence over our own personal experiences and common sense reasoning.
The root of this is denial of God/ the spiritual realm. (I don't specifically mean Christian - I mean the denial of any divine or immmaterial aspect to life.)
This works at a 'biological' level to destroy our evolved psychological adaptations - in other words we fail to reproduce.
The first generation of godless nihilists functioned OK, because they were brought-up religious; but from then onwards - and as the buffering effect of older generations died-out - the Western Populations have gone deeper and deeper into insanity.
With the gods eliminated, lack any core to our belief systems. Modern beliefs are, consequently, just labile collections of evanescent urges.
We evolved to function with this divine core, without it we are maladaptive - and, of course, all Western populations are going extinct everywhere - amidst abundance, without predators, and with little premature death - going extinct by 'choice'.
On top of this; we do not notice and cannot recognise existantial threats such as Globalist totalitarianism, forcible open-ended mass immigration, or strategic functional destruction of institutions (by universal convergence onto an ever-expanding and contradictory class/ race/ sex/ sexuality agenda).
We are a terminally mentally-sick society; and the root of our sickness is atheism, god-denial, materialism... call it what you will. If we don't 'cure' that, then nothing else matters.
