The culture of reading is important. Just look at the real examples lately, a lot of coverage that sparked ethnic or group riots in Indonesia. All that because some people immediately believe in a headline without wanting to know the contents of the whole news. Now many are spreading the news irresponsibly. Not read, just spread directly. No matter whether it’s checked or not. That is an example that is not used to practicing logic thinking because it is not used to reading in a long time.
Take for example a simple story, like the story of the Prophets or historical figures. Those who read the books will be able to analyze the beginning of the story, the process of running the story, until the completion. That way, someone who likes to read will be trained to see problems more broadly.
If you don’t like reading, try reading a picture story. “I like to read comics since I was a child, until now I like reading and distributing them through writing on blogs. Even from that blog, I also get income,” Arezza MP said. Lots of reading, because reading opens the world information window.
