How to Think for Yourself

Is the headline a sensation designed to induce emotion

is the picture carefully designed to present perfection

is the article narrowly focused only on a small part of the whole situation

these are the questions that help us think

what is the other side of the story

does a human really exist without a flaw

can we really learn the truth through one sided propaganda

yes, these are the questions that help us think

who wins if we believe them

who gets the money if we buy into the advertisement

what do they gain for showing us this, what is their intent

why would anyone want to stop us from asking questions that help us think

***

the truth is only a threat to those living a lie

debate is only a threat to those who have a weak position

a man with an honest reputation doesn’t have to force others to believe him
