There is often a wide gap between the truth and what you see on TV, hear on the radio, etc. Everyone claims to be an expert; claims their opinion to be fact. Frustrating as this is, the truth is still there to be found—if you are willing to take a closer look.
Eventually, this site will act as a platform for multiple contributors on various subjects. For now, it is a humble blog which mostly examines current events and politics through the lens of psychology. I hope to someday be considered an expert in any one of these fields. Until then, I hope that my work might act as a springboard, guiding you to those who truly are.
By doing so, I hope that I can make your pursuit of the truth just a little bit easier.
