Get Politicized

It’s important to understand what we are reading. Who wrote it? What is their background? Who is funding the person or the piece of information they have written?

Living in the world of communication at the simplest touch of a button, social network timelines filled with all different perspectives and agendas requires a questioning mind and the building of an intellectual self defence to ascertain the truth.

There are many people and organisations out there offering a new perspective that isn’t looking to perpetuate the monoculture neoliberal myth.

Good luck!
