Critical Thinking - Choice
- Lawrence Balter, Psychologist
Dr. Balter's Child Sense, 1985
It seems to me that some parts of our society are moving into the realm of blind obedience. It is easier to believe what you hear then to lend a critical ear, contemplate the pros and cons, do some research, and reach your own conclusion. Such lack of questioning of authority and attitude leads to cult like followings.
My desire is that we go back to a society that has civil discourse, debate based on facts, and considering the interest and needs of others. Enough of the WIIFM mentality.
