“Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.” — John Adams
Although John Adams understood a great deal about the weaknesses of human nature, I don’t think he could possibly have anticipated the manipulation and distortion of facts and evidence that we’ve seen in our time. Information presented as “facts” can no longer be expected to be true: we have too many people (like Adam Schiff) who think they can simply make up facts to fit their agenda. We have the Leftist media, which invents evidence that has nothing to do with the truth. And we have those people who lead several movements, such as climate change, ESG, and the World Economic Forum, and make arguments out of whole cloth, believing they are in the process of saving the planet. Most recently, we have President Joe Biden, who lied his way through the State of the Union speech.
