Certainly there are objective facts, but when you start to combine the facts, strategically leaving some out to create a “point of view” then this point of view is spread throughout a large population, which then acts of it as a premise, it is then treated as real and the consequences of it are as real as if the point of view had been reality-based, rather than based on a distortion of reality.

Also, any individual vision must necessarily be a distortion of the whole reality (objective), as no one person can encompass it and clearly understand it.

I know that I am entitled to my own opinion but not my own facts, but I also know that cognitive dissonance is a powerful force and will cause subconscious manipulation of facts, even if they are not in error, to support a preconceived conclusion. This happens left, right, and center. The very fact that you invoked “RWNJ” (right wing nut job — I had to look it up) means that you dismiss outright anyone professing a rightward-leaning agenda. Unfortunately, each side tends to reduce the other to its most extreme elements, thus creating a larger divide.
