Even so, being informed cannot be accidental. If someone wants to be properly equipped to make decisions, they need to seek it out for themselves.

Spoonfeeding information just causes people to buy into any sort of nonsense they're told.

Totally agreed. So how do you take a wikipedia like approach where you crowd-source common-knowledge but retain sincere accuracy? If you have a solution I'd love to hear it.

Most long to be guided. To get the right advice- either from ourselves in an imaginary way, or from someone we can trust.

Trust me, I understand the folly of blindly trusting a source.

My point is that, if the collective whole is informed with only factual information, we'd be able to achieve a true democracy. Without proper, free, factual education, we can't rely on democracy- we can't trust the vote of the ignorant.

Now, just for a second, shape that last paragraph to whatever your ideal/philosophy/whatever is. Do you disagree that democracy doesn't work with stupid people having the power to vote?

"providing accurate information so people can form their own opinion."

This is the opposite of /pol/, aka right wing Tumblr.

Opposite of /pol/= Any person has access to all possible information and is tasked to form their own opinion?

I agree.

But do you think that the average person can make sense of all the information available to them?

I don't.

Flooding people with factual facts and relevant reasons for believing whatever doesn't typically result in a productive progression of philosophy. You need..To Take into consideration, human nature.

So indoctrinating people is okay as long as your team does it?

Indoctrinating is an ugly word.

My personal ideal is providing accurate information so people can form their own opinion.

The difficulty with media lies within not twisting a perspective to create a desired outcome.

The problem with people is, we're naturally biased.

The problem with content is that this bias will show through, and we'll naturally try to create something in a way that forces other people to see it our way.

Alas, if you maintain discipline and tact- and provide accurate information in a topical way, wouldn't you say that's a decent way of educating others?

Or would you use a buzzword like indoctrination to rustle some jimmies?
