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.
