Stopping the politically partial truths and denials of the truth that commonly occur by many current and past politicians would go along way too. What might seem expedient at the time erodes trust over the long haul and eventually brings us to where we are now.
Case in point, Ford’s decision to pardon Nixon in the name of “bringing the nation together” and “ending the national nightmare.” Well, that obviously did not happen.
Another case in point, Obama’s decision not ot prosecute W Bush and his admin for war crimes. These types of decisions sweep the problems under the rug for them to pick out later.
We the people can, in fact, handle the truth.
