The investigative journalistic cliche goes: “if your mother says she loves you, check it out.” In the world of fake news and rapid disinformation, it is important not to believe everything we see and hear, not to swallow all of the lies that are fed to us every minute of every day.
The beginning of the journey of a truth-seeker always starts with scepticism because the belief system of a sceptic cuts both ways. If you don’t believe in conspiracies, you are often faced with the reality of disbelieving orthodoxies, accepted wisdom and official statements.
I’m a sceptic like you but, after researching, I had to admit: a sceptic is just a theorist waiting for a little more proof. They both just want to find the truth.
