The thrill of changing your mind

The thrill of changing your mind:

To make progress on a range of topics, we have to be able to change our minds. To revisit our assumptions when the data changes or when a new way of looking at it emerges. This is true whether we talk about energy, vaccines, economics, or politics in general. Fall in love with the thrill of accepting the better argument – in contrast to mere social pressure – and you’ll help pave the path to that better world. Not through grand solutions, but through better trade offs.
