To clarify, I do *not* oppose science.
I do not oppose science facts; and I wholeheartedly denounce “alternative” facts.
The point I have tried to make, via much more intelligent sources such as Paul Feyerabend and George Orwell, is that you should always think for yourself.
That doesn’t mean make up your own facts.
It means do careful research, gather input from all sources, analyze all the data available, and make a realistic, informed decision; taking into account facts and opinions, and ignoring outright lies and propaganda.
The ultimate enemy is propaganda, in ANY form. You can’t use propaganda to defeat propaganda; that’s called hypocrisy.
With an open mind and an open heart, always seek out the truth in your self and in the world. This is how to respond to “alternative facts”.
And, when you know something is propagandic BS, the very worst thing you can do is to ignore/accept it.
If you can’t oppose it, you can at the very least mock it.
You know…ridicule it. In public, yet.
Well whaddya know, Dick Dawk’s advice finally proves useful. For SOMETHING.
Suggested Reading: ‘Nineteen Eighty-Four’. Yes, I read it…I even *reviewed* it!
