The style of collegiate thinking requires students to internalize and investigate the information that they take in. In order to be successful in class, we have to analyze the words that our perceived authority figures and higher-ups give to us. So, when we apply this style of learning to the recent presidential debates, there is a reverse-effect on our minds that actually extinguishes our drive to obtain information. Our minds attempt to lose the falsities and untrue figures given by the candidates, like white blood cells strive to strike at a virus. However in the process, there are innocent and purely obtained facts given to us by our professors that serve as casualties. Since the rate of evil information is so high this election, the rate of our innocent information lost is greater than the rate of innocent information going in.
