“I wonder if my own government is being truthful about its actions in that part of the world? I wonder if my own government is in the wrong on this issue? I wonder if the news media are telling the truth right now? I wonder if the news media tell the truth about things generally? I wonder if the ‘Evil Dictators versus Virtuous Liberal Democracies’ framework I’ve been taught by teachers, pundits and politicians is the most accurate lens through which to view world events? Could I have been deceived about the way my government operates, at home and abroad? Is it possible that my beliefs about my society, my government and my world are completely wrong? What if the teachers, preachers and parents who helped form my worldview were relying on inaccurate information?” (11/15/22)
