Talent is the ability to know you’re being lied to

To the editor:

In response to Mr. Becht’s letter to the editor Oct. 1.

Forget the cabal Mr. Becht and listen to yourself. A quote from Morgan Housel:

“Your personal experiences make up maybe 0.00000001% of what’s happened in the world but maybe 80% of how you think the world works. We’re all biased to our own personal history.”

Mr. Becht it’s obvious you live in fear of COVID, the Constitution and freedom from government control. Not knowing you personally I have no idea how this has manifested in your life.

No sensible person can deny COVID is real. Can you believe the death count is real when one case involved a motorcycle crash that was listed as a COVID death because the hospital listed the driver as positive for COVID? This was reported on FOX 35 in Florida. This type of report is not isolated. Once you’re lied to, Mr. Becht it destroys credibility. COVID has been one lie or misdirection after another. Its source, how it spreads, masks, social distance, hand washing, vaccines, booster shots, study after study, one claim after another.

Gather your own information from whatever source you trust, Mr. Becht. Form your own beliefs.

The difference is independent people who think for themselves and people who follow the herd. I have told you this story before.

Mr. Becht, the required talent is the ability to know when your being lied to.
