A Simple Rule

In the information age, information overload and information noise is inevitable. I'm talking in particular about world affairs and politics. Whose side should you take? How do you pass an objective judgment?

I think this rule can help:

- Accept factual statements, not opinions. Factual statements would be atomic, verifiable, with no qualifiers attached.

Of course, opinions need to be formed eventually. But do that part yourself. Don't 'outsource' it to the TV pundits.
