Overall Scheme Of Things Quiz June 25, 2020 PDF Version

The following is a true and false test covering the overall scheme of things with respect to today’s political, economic and social situations. There are no automatically right answers. Don’t try and guess what my answers are although I may post them as a comment when I get around to it.

Sometimes we are not sure we what we think. A test like this can be utilized by a person to examine his own thoughts in the light of reality.

Notice that I do not use but occasional facts in these articles. I know about as many facts as the next guy. But, my work focuses on understanding the realities of situations when there are only a few to no facts available.

At this very moment, do we know what the president is doing? How about folks in congress? What are they thinking and planning?

All of the statistics in the world, give no clues about what leaders and all others are doing at this very moment.
