You’re probably not immune to everything that’s floating around our ecosystem right now.
But you are immune to something potentially more dangerous over the long-term.
You’re immune to being contradicted.
That’s why the most dangerous stuff you consume from the media is that which reinforces your existing beliefs.
Because reading it won’t improve your knowledge and understanding of what’s really going on in the world.
It’ll only keep you exactly where you are, swelling you with pride as you ingest further confirmation that you were right all along.
So select your information diet, like you choose what foods to eat.
Be wary of Truth Decay, a phenomenon becoming more and more widespread as every human takes up the opportunity to become a published writer and videographer.
Just because you can read it, see it or think it, doesn’t make it true.
And at this point in history, there are more readily accessible alternatives to truth and reason than ever before.
You best defence against the tsunami of fake news is to become vulnerable to attack.
Open your eyes to alternatives to your current worldview.
Imagine how you’ll feel when you realise you were wrong all along, and that your future is way better than you believed it could be.
