In these times of polarization and misinformation, educating ourselves is a must. One of the things we can do is to listen to experts. But, who are the right people to lean on for the right information?
Let’s go back to the basics. When it comes to health, listen to doctors. For political issues, listen to professors, economists, historians, and journalists. It sounds like common sense to many. But, for most, it’s otherwise.
Boycott those bloggers, celebrities, or commentators who pretend to know it all. Follow real experts for factual information and insights, especially on relevant issues and topics.
