As I troll the Internet for Truth and Entertainment and come upon an article, I find myself instinctively searching for an indication of whether or not the writer has an agenda: Are they going to tout Conservative Propaganda, tout Liberal Propaganda, or focus on the facts and what they imply?
My friends, I believe that 60-90% of us do not even consider that 3rd option.
I believe that 60-90% of us see the world through a prism: Are you for us, or against us?
I believe that 60-90% of us pick a side, and then judge others by determining whether they are friend or foe, without regard to the possibility that they might be neither.
It takes courage, and it takes moral strength, to take a genuinely objective approach to seeking Truth.
It takes work.
Most, you see, are too mentally and morally lazy to routinely operate with such an open mind. It is far easier to pick a side, and then pass everything that one sees and hears through that filter.
And that is a contemptible disgrace.
Beware, lest that disgrace be you.
