It’s really depressing out there, I know. It’s times like these that I think society’s collective lack of critical thinking skills and sheer ridiculous gullibility is going to do us all in. But we have to keep pushing to not let the power-mad conspiracy bullies win.
The world is not a simple place that can be fixed with empty statements. Complex problems can’t be solved with slogans and platitudes. Yet, about 50% of the public seems to eat this crap right up.
Well, there are a few things you can do. First, ease off the news for now. It’s horrible. It’s mostly fake and stupid. Maybe read just newspaper headlines if you want to stay informed but FOR THE LOVE OF DOG do not read comments or forums. Even Facebook is stinkin’ to the rafters right now with politics and partisanship. Mute or unfollow some people for a few weeks. It won’t hurt.
