I came across this post in a lesser known social network called MeWe. (link below) It was posted anonymously and it struck me as a valuable intellectual tool for assessing the onslaught of information we deal with every day.
Here is the complete post:
When I became a medic in the Navy, we learned how to treat patients with what is called a SOAP note:
Subjective is what the patient tells you. Their complaint or medical issue.
Objective is what you discover upon observation.
Based on your objective analysis, you then develop an Assessment, or diagnosis.
Then your Plan is … how you are going to treat the patient?
This is a great method for treating a patient because it eliminates the possibility of cognitive dissonance, emotional feelings about the patient, or any interference from your mood in general when assessing and treating your patient.
And this I believe is how people should behave in general in regards to what they are told by our corrupt media. Never believe anything you are told without an objective analysis.
The one caveat I would add is caution when coming across the word “corrupt”. While possibly factual, it is an opinion and the message still stands if it’s removed from the sentence.
