It is often said that you can’t choose your facts, just their interpretation. There is probably no point in trying to convince somebody they are mis-interpreting a fact. Which is why our society is so polarized. They may believe that what they are saying is a fact! (Sometimes the only thing that’s a fact is the fact they are talking!) Just because you say something is a fact and repeat it over and over does not make it so. But facts are the same the world over. They don’t require belief to be true. Try to keep an open mind and ask yourself if someone is asking you to suspend disbelief in a very important matter, is what they’re telling you based upon a true fact or are they engaged in some type of manipulation? What’s in it for them?
