Most of what is wrong with America nowadays is that people have learned to simply believe & mimic what they’ve heard from the media, divisive politicians, and biased educators. Critical thinking and forming one’s own opinions have gone out the window. Before you accept any story or stance on an issue, think to yourself, what does my logic, experience, and common sense tell me? Is having fewer police really going to make cities safer? Do border walls help prevent illegal entry to a location? Are you safer from Covid if you’re protesting racism rather than stay-at-home orders? If the nation keeps spending trillions more every year while taking in less tax revenue, do you think we might have a problem down the road? If kids virtually never get Covid and are more likely to die by lightning strike, does it make sense to complete overhaul schools for CDC guidelines? Is cheating in an election more or less likely if photo IDs are required? And so on. Only in today’s parallel universe could politicians and corrupt media say the most nonsensical things and somehow have them become accepted as truth by half the population.
