What is your verdict?
We are living in an age of information battles and polemics in which it is increasingly difficult to distinguish what information is credible or relevant (the facts from the alternative facts).
How we perceive an entity is shaped by that information as well as by the opinions of others and also by norms, values and beliefs. When people believe that a person (like a CEO or sports personality), a company or political party or a business activity (certain methods of food or energy production) makes a contribution to their wellbeing or to that of society at large, they will consider it as proper, desirable and worthy of support - in other words, it will be seen as legitimate.
Try our interactive Shades of grey – legitimate or illegitimate? to explore cases that trigger debate in society. How do you judge the legitimacy of these activities? How is your judgment shaping your actions towards them?
