We live in a society that values rational, linear arguments. We like to hear arguments and opposing arguments. Based on those arguments, we form objective opinions. Right? I believe it’s the other way around. I think it is that we have opinions and then we adopt arguments that coincide with what we already believe.
Be honest, if you research an issue, are you seeking the truth however it is? Or are you going in with what you think the truth is, and just looking for things that support what you already think? In most instances, I think this is how we are.
