With the growing online presence in this world, I find that more and more people make up shit. Sadly, masses of people simply take it for truth.
This is something I have a hard time understanding. Is it that as a culture we are simply too trusting? Or too lazy? Why take the time to research the statistics people are quoting, and ask the hard questions; when it is so fast to just google it. Wikipedia says (lots of crap) , so therefor it must be true.
Do they ever think that if everyone claims to be stating truth yet they are all stating conflicting ideas, that is impossible?
But the truth is not exciting. It doesn’t bring in the ratings or sell products. And first and foremost making money is the most important thing in life, right?
How did this happen? Who is to blame? There is no simple answer.
I do know this. The truth is out there. It may be covered in my fox news induced vomit. But it is out there.
Go find it.
