Schwarzenegger: Det er svaghed kun at lytte til kilder som bekræfter hvad du gerne selv vil tro

Den berømte bodybuilder, skuespiller og politiker Arnold Schwarzenegger blander sig nu i et meget aktuelt spørgsmål - nemlig hvordan vi opbygger vores viden og hvem vi lytter til.

Arnold Schwarzenegger rammer den så rent at han fortjener at blive citeret i fuld længde

I said this to someone in the comments, but I think a lot of you need to hear this.

I always say you should know your strengths and listen to the experts. If you want to learn about building biceps, listen to me, because I’ve spent my life studying how to get the perfect peak and I have been called the greatest bodybuilder of all time. We all have different specialties.

Dr. Fauci and all of the virologists and epidemiologists and doctors have studied diseases and vaccines for their entire lives, so I listen to them and I urge you to do the same. None of us are going to learn more than them by watching a few hours of videos. It’s simple: if your house in on fire, you don’t go on YouTube, you call the damn fire department. If you have a heart attack, you don’t check your Facebook group, you call an ambulance. If 9 doctors tell you you have cancer and need to treat it or you will die, and 1 doctor says the cancer will disappear, you should always side with the 9. In this case, virtually all of the real experts around the world are telling us the vaccine is safe and some people on Facebook are saying it isn’t.

In general, I think if the circle of people you trust gets smaller and smaller and you find yourself more and more isolated, it should be a warning sign that you’re going down a rabbit hole of misinformation. Some people say it is weak to listen to experts. That’s bogus. It takes strength to admit you don’t know everything. Weakness is thinking you don’t need expert advice and only listening to sources that confirm what you want to believe.

Arnold Schwarzenegger refererer her til en debat omkring Covid-19, men hans pointe er anvendelig fuldstændigt generelt i vores tid.
