I have some pretty left leaning associates WP, and I have seen the Fox news derangement syndrome...and sometimes it is down right laughable. I have also seen what I consider to be intelligent people completely disregard the opposing analysis of the paper which purportedly found the 97% of scientist agreeing on anthropogenic warming, simply because the "science is settled." When has ANY science ever been settled?? From what I remember gravity is still debated by theoretical physicist, and what can be more fundamental and accepted than gravity?
I think Heisenberg was onto something at the quantum level that could apply to daily life an logic as well...there will always be uncertainty. We just need to be open to it, just in case it provides something that will change our position -- like Kadence said -- after applying our own logic.
And BR, maybe pop culture should be a place that people exercise a bit of critical thinking -- I mean, instead of mindlessly falling for Bernaysian manipulation techniques. Or do you think that people should blindly accept what they see or hear in media without applying critical thought? Probably not. But do I see your point...most people who are fanatics or follow pop culture do not think that deeply about most things.
"And in conclusion..." lol
This is what I like the most about this forum...it's not just about solving code problems! There on some pretty great minds here, and I, for one, definitely appreciate that!
