There is mounting controversy surrounding the authenticity, legitimacy and veracity of any number of assertions on the World Wide Web. Nor should it be entirely surprising that there is a growing dispute regarding many of our more popular social opinions, things like religion, political propriety and what if anything can be done to make America great again.

The World Wide Web (WWW), commonly known as the Web, is an information system enabling information to be shared over the Internet through simplified ways meant to appeal to users beyond IT “specialists” and hobbyists, as well as documents and other web resources to be accessed over the Internet according to specific rules, the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP).

Naturally it should constitute an elemental feature of this potentially vast source of scholarship that one should from time to time question its source and accuracy. Very often in my experience with the formulation of legal entitlement (whether by ensuing contract or interpretation of statutory law), an examination of the source is a fruitful beginning, including the expression of what constitutes immediate repercussions. Namely, “What do you want?” and “How do you get there?”

But before commencing this sometimes difficult and prickly investigation of thought and behaviour, we would do well to recall other axiomatic adages which perhaps have a bearing upon the scrutiny. For example, it is considered reasonable in the crtical examination of any almost any proposition that “Things happen for a reason” which is to suggest that we would do well to enlarge our comprehension by acquainting ourselves with those alliances and remedies which seemingly govern the outcome of a proposition. This is not so much to exhibit the curious connection between precedents and consequents but rather to exemplify that every objective is prompted by a yearning of it own, a longing which is frequently extinguished only upon the accomplishment of the proposed objective. On occasion a dispute arises regarding the entitlement of one to make an assertion based upon existing qualification. For example, when an attack upon voting rights is curiously founded upon ill-structured racist features.

Assessing whether the scope of the associated dissection is sufficient to legitimize the related theorem is a more stringent routine. Verifying factual information is among the more studious undertakings in this arena of endeavour.  At the very least we can familiarize ourselves with the tawdry business of those devoted only to display and attention at the expense of the less commanding truth or reality.
