A Thought Experiment

It’s easy to think that all our society needs is more reason, logic, and facts.

But the fact is, facts are only so persuasive. There is wisdom in crowds, but the individual pursuit of reason is difficult — and reasoning as a group is all the more so. (Just try making a decision by committee.)

We can try to logic our way out of this mess.

Or maybe, just maybe, we can try to get a little quieter and a little more curious instead of trying to shout each other down.

It might not be the easy way, but might it turn out to be easier than shouting after all?
