another project WORLDVIEW worldview theme                 copyright 2020             Home         

#2B I KNOW WHAT'S BEST FOR YOU 

I feel I have found "the answer" (what to believe, buy, how to behave, the best way to do something, etc.)  And  I feel obligated to share what I've found with you, so you too can benefit! Please bear with me if it seems my evangelizing, persuading, etc disrespects your beliefs, values, or feelings I have your interests in mind!  (Note: Some see these people as selfless leaders willing to helpfully step up and point the way forward, others see them as dispensers of propaganda who selectively use facts / emotionally charged language to promote a self-serving agenda.)
