The alarming thing has nothing to do with health or elections or wars. The alarming thing is the control of lies. It would be nice if we could eliminate all the lies and have nothing but truth left, as that would clear a lot of things up. The problem and what makes it the alarming thing is, who gets to decide?
I’ve considered this quite a bit of late, and as much as I would like to see only the truth, I’d rather someone else not decide what is true. It should be up to me to decide, and by me, I mean all of us. Leaving it up to us may lead to our demise, but not having the choice may lead to worse.
The people should decide.

I think many would agree that bad information has gotten out of hand in recent years. The government cannot and should not take action. The various sources cannot really be trusted. What is the real fix? How do we preserve the truth and disarm the lies?
