Some Good Advice From ECW

by lizard

Dave Budge, at Electric City Weblog, has a post anyone engaging in political discourse would benefit from reading and considering, titled: Overcoming Bias, Increasing Understanding.

I don’t have much time to write about this now, because I’m 30 minutes from boarding a flight with the family, but check it out.

I know, personally, I definitely succumb to confirmation bias, and probably don’t challenge my own assumptions enough. Not doing so means I could remain stagnant and rigid in my beliefs and opinions, which is something I don’t want to do.

Also, I can be kind of a dick sometimes, which never leads to a better understanding of some of the very complex problems we face as a state, nation, and ultimately a species sharing a finite amount of planetary resources.

So thank you, Dave, for the post and kind words about 4&20. This cranky leftist borderline extremist appreciates the good advice.

Now I must steel myself for traveling. I can’t wait to get back to Montana.
