If you don’t agree – don’t comment!

The “If you don’t agree don’t comment” is actually the major problem with society today.

Most people are not interested in any evidence that contradicts their pet beliefs, and AI systems that curate news feeds that they get based purely on what holds their attention in practice (for the advertising revenue that produces – some fraction of a cent per second on average) just tends to reinforce any and all biases present.

So rather than accepting that we are dealing with an exceptionally complex and fundamentally uncertain reality, people tend to retreat to comfortable certainty of their biases and blame some “other” for their own failings.

Sorry Nev.

Love you like a brother, but that attitude is not acceptable or survivable in anyone.

About Ted Howard NZ

Seems like I might be a cancer survivor. Thinking about the systemic incentives within the world we find ourselves in, and how we might adjust them to provide an environment that supports everyone (no exceptions) with reasonable security, tools, resources and degrees of freedom, and reasonable examples of the natural environment; and that is going to demand responsibility from all of us - see www.tedhowardnz.com/money
