Carson Stenroos Unit 2 Assignment 3

Option 2: I think the best way to get people to care about the truth in their writings and speeches is to eliminate all possible biases that they might have as an author. This is why we see so much bullshit in today’s media coverage. Whether writing about politics, sports, or anything in between, many authors want to convey their beliefs as what is true instead of presenting raw facts and information to give readers their own chance to develop personal beliefs. Many people will say whatever they can to convince others that they are right, no matter how loosely their statements are connected with the truth. That being said, I don’t think it will ever be possible to eliminate this bias bullshit because people will always try to persuade others to what they believe to be true. Especially with the amount of information flowing in today’s world, there is constant bullshit being argued on every side of every argument because there are so many sources with bullshit to backup the bullshit argument.

Option 3: Whether reality is one sole truth of the world or what we perceive our truth of the world to be, why does it matter? Either answer could be correct and it would not change how the world works or how people would live their day-to-day lives. The world will still continue on no matter what the conclusion is to this dilemma, if there is one at all. It would be nice to find an answer to this pressing question, but I don’t believe this answer to be concerning to 99% of the population. I find this question puzzling because I do not know why this matters to our lives, so my current answer to this question is that it does not matter, but I would like to hear a reason as to why it could matter.
