Misinformation becomes assumptions. Since the information is false, the assumptions are false as well. But eventually, these assumptions are so widely accepted that they become realities they’re fake realities.
In 1997 when I first came to India, I noticed that all the vehicles used the old nylon tires. When I asked at several tire shops about getting radial tires, they all replied: “Oh, they won’t hold up to the kind of rough roads we have here.”
Now, more than twenty years later, the roads have improved only a little, but Radial tires are all you see here. The misinformation had become a fake reality.
