The problem with information nowadays

The problem with information nowadays is not that there is no, or insufficient, information.

There is plenty of it. More than any person has ever experienced in the lived experience of a human being.

No, the problem now is being able to figure out which information is worth paying attention to and which is best ignored.

There is so much misinformation, disinformation, untruth, lies, agendas, slogans, exaggerations, distortions that figuring out the small amount of information that we ought to have regard for now is the most important thing most of us can do in our daily lives.
