Anything that has made its way to the people, is scrutinized by the people. Paradoxically, The people, consist of individuals. Critical analysis of anything under consideration, is performed by some of the people, for the people at large. The acting and beneficiaries are different. Hence, if the individual under focus were to derive a conclusion, would inevitably have to do so by speaking for more than just oneself, leaving room for ambiguity. Of course the element of diverse motivations – to analyze and come up with the conclusions, exists. Pondering on the same leads to something as follows.
The humans, the human language and the ever-innovative art of storytelling leverage the vast domain of conclusions backed by various assumptions, often themselves consisting of other conclusions.
Like the analogical fruit being presented as linked to the ground with a stick, facilitating the bypass of (or perhaps stealing away) critical thinking for the reader.

Especially in the world full of choices, where we are forced to make decisions.
