Everything you know about Islam you learned from the internet or the mainstream media. Admit it and you’ll realize you know nothing.
The truth is, we only truly know about things if we’ve experienced it first hand or heard it from individuals who we know well and have reason to trust. The best way to learn the truth about someone or something is to cut out the corporate-owned middleman and learn about it through direct experience.
The only way to learn about each others true values is to interact with each other directly about the things that matter to us most.
I’m not on this god forsaken internet because I have nothing better to do. Sure, I’m here to learn new things and share my knowledge and experience. But in the process, I’m doing something far more invaluable – I’m getting to know you and you’re getting to know me. I’m countering the hate and the fear spewed by the mainstream media by building bridges of trust and understanding.
