“Everybody gets so much information all day long that they lose their common sense.” — Gertrude Stein. Do you agree?
To be truthful, yes we do get an overdose of information on a daily basis, all day long. You go online you are bombarded with information left, right and center. You cannot escape it. You go to Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, BBs, Instagram, etc etc! On your phone you are sent dozens of links on Whatsapp and other chat apps. Can you escape it?
You can either go offline or do what I do or atleast try to do. Sift through the rubble and sewage and find the things that you can really use. Delete the stuff you do not want to read. Pick and choose the news articles and materials and ensure that they are from legitimate sources or people who share legitimate sources. In the end you have to decide what you want to consume on a daily basis. Make the choice! It’s a little hard, especially with confirmation biases instilled into all of us but we have to do it.
If not you end up like a 24hr consumer of garbage, unable to decipher what is genuine and what isn’t.
