News is this funny thing. One day it’s interesting.
And the very next, it’s devastating.
Why do we feel the need to keep everyone up to date on the rising threat of ‘terrorism’?
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying there’s no such thing.
I’m saying people lie.
Some people lack the morals you and I share.
But even then, that’s still an assumption.
What I’m getting at is:
- we seem to blame every horrible act on terrorism,
- we lack a real understanding of the world, and
- we are believing everything we hear.
That’s like believing every single thing that comes out of someone’s mouth.
You can’t tell me you agree with every single thing President Trump has ever said.
Including the stuff about climate change.
(Sorry that’s a sore spot) (Blame my environment politics class for that).
It’s easy to judge someone based on the way they look, by their actions in any given moment.
But to actually get to know a real person these days… God forbid.
We all happily consume news, but is the reporter reputable?
Are the sources reputable?
Like, is Avril Lavigne dead, or alive?
Do you see what I mean?
We don’t know, but we’re happy for a stranger to tell us what’s up.
And some of us believe that.
What is with that?
