A few solutions might be the following.
- Explore multiple perspectives, including those with different political leanings and religious affiliations.
- Verify information by apply critical thinking and doing your own research.
- Recognise your own biases and strive to approach information with an open mind.
- Check multiple sources to see if there is consensus or divergence in reporting.
- Pay attention to the language used and the way information is presented, including cultish rhetoric or appeals to “the science”.
- Have discussions with individuals who hold diverse perspectives, including those rooted in religion or faith, to challenge your assumptions and broaden your understanding.
Plus, values are important because they provide a guiding framework for individuals, communities, and societies. They serve as fundamental principles or beliefs that shape our behaviour, decisions, and interactions with others.

And you’ll be lost in the fog.
