One of the questions I am being asked these days is, "How can I become more propaganda-proof?"
You can start by learning how to distinguish between:
- When you're being fed selective cherry-picked data and complete data;
- Data and interpretations;
- When someone is trying to inform you and when they are trying to persuade you.
I, for one, welcome complete data, multiple potential interpretations of that data, and explicitly identified attempts to persuade.
