Is it helpful?

As the world burns with division in the wake of the covid pandemic it’s increasingly challenging to find common ground. Opinions of the subjects at hand run deep, emotionally speaking, they’re big topics that folks are unlikely to move on simply with plain logic.

Truth is subjective. Humans are emotional, irrational and biased. This means we’re mostly pretty lame at long range thinking, decision making, understanding complex issues and remembering important facts.

In this intense moment of human existence perhaps rather than getting caught up in the he said / she said of government guidance, tin foil hats and conspiracy theories, better to ask, is it helpful?
