How YouTube and Others Shape Opinion

Do you watch YouTube videos? I do.

As I have watched different videos, what YouTube offers me for more to watch has changed. I watched some Jordan Peterson videos, and so I get offered more of the same. More Jordan Peterson and also Ben Shapiro and Dinesh D’Souza. They are very good speakers. There might be some leftist speakers who also are good speakers, too, but YouTube does not offer me any of those.

I am pretty much non-leftist, but that does not mean that I do not want to hear well-stated leftist thought. I do like to learn from other viewpoints.

It is hard to avoid the idea that I might be missing something. Polarisation is ugly.
