For flat-earth believers. If the earth is flat, why are all of the other planets round? And why doesn’t earth ever flip over like a coin? And if it did, what would be on the other side?
If “mainstream media” is all one thing that follows a particular narrative, why – in more than 30 years of working in it – was I never once summoned to a news suppression meeting? Or given a guideline on what to cover and what to ignore? Why were I and all of my colleagues allowed to make our own decisions on the definition of “news”? And why is it still that way?
Who decided that “social media” was a thing whose opinion was worth noting? As far as I can tell, “social media” is made up of people who are smart, stupid, well-informed, misinformed, reacting off the top of their heads, and making decisions after careful deliberation.

Why do scientists conduct experiments on rats because they’re smart and a lot like us, but rats out in the world are disgusting and an indication of filth? How can an octopus show recognition and intelligence in the wonderful documentary, My Octopus Teacher, but also get processed and canned with flavorings and salt for fine dining?
Why do some people treat the earth with care and consideration, because it’s our only home, while other behave like careless renters?
