It is said that information is power, and in my opinion that’s true, and as real as the need to be very careful with the information we are receiving every day. It is often claimed that newspapers and other media have to be read in order to stay in touch with the world, to know what’s going on out there. Personally, I think we need to get used to comparing the way every newspaper tells the story, searching for sources, and trying to find out what the agenda of the newspaper is.
Fake news stuff warned us not to believe every note, headline or breaking news we see, no matter Country or journalist, mainstream or blogger. I recommended searching for sources, keeping sharp-eyes on the angle of the story, and reading the same topic from different Countries. As least if we don’t want to be used as cannon fodders in the war on propaganda.
It is known that, in our tight-interconnected world, the Butterfly Effect is absolutely real: If a butterfly flaps its wings in China, a hurricane can be produced in America. E.g. the war on drugs has sent waves of unrest and violence all over the world, and its effects can be felt even in our neighborhoods.
Is important for us to understand that, in fact, the communication business is about power, control and money, the truth is only something to be used or maybe avoided, and what happens in one place could affect the entire planet. The good of our beloved ones must persuaded us to stay alert, to try to find out the underlaying truth every day, and even more important in my point of view, encouraged us to learn how to read the reality in this changing and deceiving world.
