Discerning the Truth
Truth is hard to come by these days. If things don’t change, it will be even harder for our grandchildren. Even now, many people don’t know where to find truth, and, increasingly, they don’t even know how to search for it, believing that it can be found in the tweets of their favorite celebrities, at the top of a Google search, or on a Wikipedia page. However, the real problem for this and future generations is not fundamentally where and how they find the truth but their failure to recognize the truth. For this reason, we must train the next generation to discern truth not only from error but from half-truth, from distorted truth, and from partially-erased truth.
