Cautious Thinking Requires Disbelief

No matter where you live in the world, more than ever, you must be careful to not jump to conclusions by what you see or read in the media.  Public opinion has never been so widely and so effectively manipulated as it is today in the information age.

From targeted ads that haunt you as you shop, to major media outlets that have become propaganda arms of governments, the individual's mind is under continuous assault from forces that wish to manipulate and control it.

Video editing has gotten so slick, that even amateurs can put together bogus news stories that appear as high-gloss reliable recordings of actual events, but which are complete fabrications.
