Can you see beyond your own beliefs?

June 6 2015 09:16:24 AM Add/Read Comments [35]
Here is a wonderful story by a wise friend of mine Tom Dickson.

I love the section: "challenging a believer of conspiracy theories, I’ve learned, is a waste of time ... however strong your argument, he contorts it to fit his beliefs ... however reputable your sources, he dismisses them as complicit in the conspiracy … further discussion, you soon realize, is pointless, and you’re tempted to just leave it at that and move on."

The same holds for any "firm believer" whether is someone who is fanatical about their favourite sports franchise, a technology evangelist who refuses to see beyond their echo chamber, or someone who tries to force their political or religious views on you.

The irony is we live in a world where more information is available than even before and the ability to have open conversations is so simple, yet it's rare to find people willing to put aside their bias and be open to all sides of a story.
