Misfire, I completely agree with you. There is an ongoing trend for people to instill a sense of "balance" in every aspect of there lives, including knowledge, which by definition is a collection be facts and not simply information. This in turn helps dictates their ideology, and that is worrisome. The truth often hurts, as it should, and we should fight the natural impulse that pushes us to reconcile inconvenient truths.
