    I was interested to read what was said about the Leave / Remain vote in the UK. Voting against your beliefs so as not to be in the same ‘category’ as many others is not the answer, in my opinion.
    As for fake news, it has always been around. The Romans were even very good at it. These days, it is just more easily accessible to all.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    Yeah, I didn’t buy his logic there. I guess abstaining was also an option. As for the Romans, I saw a very compelling documentary that made the case that Christianity was nothing more than an invented psychological warfare project of theirs.
