Prompt 1: You recently read an article explaining how, in American society, questions of fact are increasingly becoming questions of politics. The article on climate change showed how politics and information intersect in increasingly confusing ways. What is another example of this of which you are aware, or which you have experienced? What do you think the future looks like for a society that can’t agree on matters of fact?
