Raw material is necessary to build the foundation upon which I form my final conclusions.
To the writers and speakers of the world, use your raw material as a foundation to polish the thought. Don’t feel compelled to publish or speak everything that’s in your bank of ideas. Not all of them are good and not all of them are accurate.
I hear too much of that these days – all over the cable networks. Too many people have lost all integrity in what they communicate, and will say anything to get you to latch onto their agenda.
If you take the bait, then you’re grabbing onto a bunch of lies that in the end support only the person spewing them and not the ideals that you actually seek. Build your own bank of ideas. Make them make sense to you and then to others.
