The popular belief is easily created by misinformation
Anything we may encounter in our lives can be challenged. any rule/regulation/law is a half-truth, why else do lawyer do so well. Those people making rules and laws have no idea what they are doing, simply rely on guesswork and probability. Academic people with a long list of achievements are not more qualified than those with no achievements and investigations carried out in the name of research are often conducted by subordinates with the of creating a favourable political and commercially result.
ImportanT is what feels right for you. It is worth remembering that what feel rights for you is not necessarily right for anyone else. Historical information is unreliable, from nation to nation the so called facts will differ according to your home country, history lessons are wildly bias. It is said that the victor writes the history but who is going to admits to loosing, Accounts given in a dispute will differ to the point where legal action is required. Hearsay evidence is not allowed. Taking an oath on a stack of bibles does not make it true. Sometimes we have to challenge popular beliefs and stand alone with our feelings.
It not surprising that a feelings of injustice are commonplace. Politicians keeping promises? Businesses contracts with wriggle room and help lines that avoid face to face contact. Insurances with stacks of invalidation clauses. and local authorities denying responsibility, We are subject to a raft of legal requirements, health and safety, public liability etc, obliging us to conform with impossible probabilities without offering genuine benefit.
In a world of misinformation, political or national bias how do we discern the truth ‘The press’. love the sensational stories, live off rumour, fake news and scare mongering. Don’t be taken in by vaguely factual stories or allow your feelings to change, stay in the present. Avoid being taken in by non factual stories, stay centred in the present.
