Natural Ignorance of Collective Reasoning

We all have a chance to work on something important here. We have seen how gleefully the scientific method was so eagerly kicked to curb by those who should have had the greatest reverence. After global warming alarmism and the failure of Western sceince everything is different

We must know nothing will ever be the same.

Future decision-making must reckon with what we now know will be our future. We must face facts:

The methodology we must employ in the future to make rational choices among various alternatives demands that we must expect natural and rational ignorance, biased expectations, mistakes, unpleasant surprises  — even a level self-imposed pain from systematically making bad choices based on a sort of societal masochism — such that we gird ourselves and demand that we all must purposefully limit the scope of all of our collective actions in full knowledge that in acting together the simple fact is that our collective reasoning simply can no longer be trusted.

Or, we can go back to the basic principles of respecting individual liberty and demanding personal responsibility.

About Wagathon

Hot World Syndrome—fear of a hotter, more intimidating world than it actually is prompting a desire for more protection than is warranted by any actual threat. A Chance Meeting– We toured south along the Bicentennial Bike Trail in the Summer of 1980, working up appetites covering ~70 miles per day and staying at hiker/biker campgrounds at night along the Oregon/California coast (they were 50¢ a day at that time). The day's ride over, and after setting up tents, hitting the showers, and making a run to a close-by store, it was time to relax. The third in our little bicycle tour group, Tom, was about 30 yards away conversing with another knot of riders and treating himself to an entire cheesecake for dinner. He probably figured Jim and I would joke about what a pig he was eating that whole pie and decided to eat among strangers. Three hours later after sharing stories and remarking on a few coincidences that turned up here and there, Tom and one of the former strangers realized they were cousins, meeting in this most unlikely place for the first time. ~Mac
