Truth Stands on Its Own
True "truth" does not require government, media, or corporate enforcement, nor protection by censorship from competing ideas.
Freedom in a democratic constitutional republic depends on the free exchange and discussion of all ideas.
Because of active government, media, and/or corporate suppression of "wrong-think/mis-information," treat all information about
vaccines, climate, elections, racism, history, gender, guns, conspiracies, etc.
with the same skepticism that you would information from Pravda, Isvestia, Joseph Goebbels, or the Ministry of Truth.
Because of demonstrable partisan bias in the media, assume that what comes from "mainstream" outlets is intended to mislead,
distract, or otherwise manipulate, until independently proven otherwise.
For the same reason, assume that topics the "mainstream" outlets avoid or suppress contain a truth that they find uncomfortable or contrary
to their agenda, until independently proven otherwise.
Lack of coverage does not prove irrelevance.
Refusal to allow investigation or discussion of a topic suggests a cover-up of uncomfortable truths.
Transparency can prove lack of malfeasance; lack of transparency suggests the possibility of malfeasance.
Always follow the money and power; ask whose ox is being gored and whose agenda benefits from any given "truth" that is presented or hidden.
Don't trust me either - do your own critical thinking and fact checking.
Consider the adequacy and reliability of the sources upon which I base my own opinions,
and the reasonableness of my own thought processes.
A precedent for the consequences of the politicization of science can be found in the history of
Lysenkoism in the old Soviet Union, which is reported in
peer-reviewed PubMed article.
These articles illustrate the devastating consequences of the politicization of science™
But the politicization of science is not limited to the old Soviet Union.
Dr. Michiel Creighton, a scientific writer with degrees in Anthropology and Medicine from Harvard
University, discusses the growing problem in the United States in his dead-serious but humerously titled essay
"Aliens Cause Global Warming."
