Confirmation asks questions about why we believe what we believe and how persistent an extreme conviction can be if it has to be continuously explained. It examines the phenomenon of confirmation bias through an honorable dialogue, real and imagined, with political extremism. For Confirmation, Thorpe spoke with neo-Nazis and Holocaust deniers, amongst others. He performs the text that emerged from these interviews himself.
