What is Reliable Intel? What is Unreliable?
Smartphones, Wiki and the Internet have allowed for quick and easy intel to be delivered instantly. It can lead to disregarding verifying and validating the intel as proven or hypothetical or in some cases opinion. In today’s fast paced and bite sized info media, it is easy to slide into laziness and blame it on being too ‘busy’ to verify. It requires even a more powerful laziness to repeat the bite sized claims as facts.
Our younger generation has been fed instant citational info their entire lives delivered on request on their devices. Doing the hard work and spending the minutes to validate and verify is just not possible in their minds. What price will us village elders pay for allowing this?
Will we tell them the difference between hypotheticals and proven math?
Shall we tell them about reliable and unreliable things? Will we tell them the difference between hypotheticals and proven math? Can we show them how to determine what is provable and what should be considered unproven? Will they come to know what a theory is? and what basing a new theory on an existing theory means?
Besides losing them to the bite size revolution and where that takes them, what personal Hell will we live and endure for leaving such a future for them? Will the village elders due their duty or will we allow the young ones to be taken by the bite sized world of unproven and hypothetical theories? Where entire Human Beings can be directed like puppets on a string and then dust in the wind, if we stand by and wail with them. Or get off our knees and asses and do something about it.
