Critical thinking is important, but...

I also think we should be encouraged to form our own hypothesis based on a critical analysis of the available information coupled with our experience (& intuition) and our knowledge of historical president. Yet, we should be open to reformulation if new information develops.

What we should NOT do is simply believe what billows out of the TV and then regurgitate "the official story" to others without a second thought.

The government always demands that the people "not rush to [their own] conclusions."

Of course, logic and common sense should never rise above the dictates of the state especially when the people are placed under the spell of fear. {/sarcasm}
