Auren, Very good point. Widespread access to readily available information has made it easy for people to not only outsource their critical thought, but also reinforce existing prejudices and opinions through the consumption of media that simply serves to justify their position. Ironically, those who outsource the most would argue they're not outsourcing at all - which suggests to me a lack of self-awareness on a fundamental level. If someone is smart enough to consider, and follow, the advice you've given above, they're already way ahead of the pack. The real challenge lies in reaching those who can't even recognize the problem, and waking them up to the reality they've built for themselves. Great interview question by the way.
