On the surface this is funny.
Beneath the surface it’s serious.
Each player is attempting to define reality.
There is no real question.
Nor is there a real answer.
Whoever wins the match scores a point.
When enough points are scored, opposing views can officially become classified as antisocial – disinformation as a disruptive social weapon.
At that point censorship kicks in.
We must go back to encouraging debate.
It isn’t important who wins the match.
What matters is creating a healthy environment for authentic interaction, inquiry, and critical thinking.
Many of our current beliefs turn out to be incorrect down the road.
That is normal and natural.
