Recent viral internet incidents and sensational news headlines have highlighted the inconvenient and painful truth that each of us sees the world through our own unique filters. In this time of deep division and “culture wars,” political polarization and “fake news,” it is important that we be aware of our own preconceptions and prejudices, and that we strive to look beyond them. But it is equally imperative that we not allow ourselves to be drawn into the trap of false equivalency. What’s an open-hearted, open-minded truth-seeker to do?
