All major dangers are either obvious because they occur quickly, or being/will be successfully prevented by our government. There is no need to take personal precautions about chronic dangers, if you are in a first world "free" country.

This is why people do not dig to find out how dangerous exposure to even just a little nuclear fallout is, and why they are so ready to believe the "banana" and "airplane" myths.

If you're below the age of 30 and in a 'developed' country it would be extremely difficult if not impossible to find someone that does suffer one of these to a degree. How awful.

In my area people wear all 3 on there sleeve pretty much, like proud drones of the ptb, oh and if you dont ehibit these characteristics there's a good chance you get looked at like you are growing tentacles, ridiculed or just hated.

People suffer from the need to be right.

Whatever people believe they will seek evidence to support their beliefs and reinforce what they believe.

Seems to be how our brains are wired, so if you brainwash a child, he will spend his life defending those beliefs.

Re: What's the one most significant delusion most people suffer from?
what is responsible for most cognitive bias:

People mistake the fact that they feel for a true experience of "truth" that shape their perception, thinking that feeling is experiencing reality as it is (from an absolutist perspective).

The sole fact of perceiving our environment is relative and yet some dumb-asses think they know for sure, absolutely when they have no idea of how relative their own perception of reality is.
Here i'm not talking about an anthropocentered perception of the reality common to the specie, i'm talking about personal bullshit who conduct people to say "I" and think they talk for the world when they're not even smart enough to understand that by saying "I" they are positioning themselves and choose to perceive only one part of the whole reality intelligible to them. How can you talk for the world and think your point of view is a fact when your perception of you own world is ABSOLUTELY RELATIVE

Re: What's the one most significant delusion most people suffer from?
Psychological projection or projection bias is a psychological defense mechanism where a person subconsciously denies his or her own attributes, thoughts, and emotions, which are then ascribed to the outside world, usually to other people. Thus, projection involves imagining or projecting the belief that others originate those feelings.

The notion that there is a "we" that have to battle "them", whether the "we" differ from the "them" in skin color, culture, religion, country, hair color, soccer- or football club we sympathize with.

Re: What's the one most significant delusion most people suffer from?
The most significant delusion is people believing their elected representatives in government are there on our behalf and are watching out for our best interests-

-while the actual truth is all of the candidates are working for the benefit of shareholders and banksters and their job is to allow those parasites to feed on us (their host) indefinitely.

* Or that's one of the top delusions anyway. The folks are deluded because of the manipulated media.

The one most significant delusion most people suffer from in the United States is that The United States is a free country.

Followed closely by the belief that our current government is the same one our forfathers created and not the corporation it truely is!!
