There is so much news being churned out on more platforms that there is no longer an excuse for not knowing.
I didn’t know there was genocide in Rwanda
I didn’t know that this politician owned or worked at a bank.
The information is out there. What we all need to do is ask questions. If you hear a declarative statement from a news source? Look it up! Make up your own mind and find meaning for yourself. Try not to toe the party line. Find your center, your philosophy and world view.
There are no excuses for being uninformed. Make an effort.
