Letter to the Editor: Question all sources

By MARK JAMES WILSON

Editor:

Newspapers, talk radio, television, and even science now purport to definitively answer life's questions and to report reality.

These media sources (science included) collect data from so-called experts and then present their findings as definitive "truth." We the people blindly accept these "scientifically-proven" truths and expert "opinions" as unbiased and as representative of reality.

Some people claim that they have done the necessary investigation. Nevertheless, all of us must question ourselves. Where is information coming from?

Is it possible that these information sources have any vested interests, even the self-proclaimed nonbiased information sources (science)? Why do we trust these information sources? Because everyone else does?

This "information apathy" is alarming and we the people must constantly call all information sources into question. If not, we will continue down the path of oppression.
