Cal Thomas states (“Ministry of Truth 2.0,” May 30) that Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas “is reportedly considering the development of tools that would help America’s children discern truth from lies and know when they are being fed disinformation,” and then proceeds to equate this with the government telling children what they should believe.

The remainder of his opinion piece illustrates exactly why the analytical skills embedded in the secretary’s alleged proposal are vitally important to all Americans, not just children.

Cal Thomas can denigrate the secretary’s proposal if he does not like government being interested in truth, but he could be constructive and offer valuable insight into the importance to our country (and others) of being able to separate truth from fiction, and how this skill could be acquired.
