#Idea – Fighting Editorial Bias in Your News Consumption / 31.10.12

In the process of trying to find out what happened,
You will be told how to think about what happened.
I think that this is almost entirely unavoidable.

Knowing this, it’s probably best to consume a range of news sources from different parts of the political spectrum.
There is some hope that, in doing this, their biases will cancel each other out – at least to some extent.

#Idea – Getting Free of ‘The Past’ / 14.04.21

A lot of what we call ‘the past’, isn’t. 
You haven’t put it behind us, 
And we might never put it behind us.

Something may be in your past, in the temporal sense
But with you forever in your lived experience.

And until you manage to shake it,
You can’t call it the past
As it invades your current moment
And as you relive it every day.
