NO! THAT’S NOT THE FUCKING POINT!

Cited by Batya:

“The most reliable cure for confirmation bias is interaction with people who don’t share your beliefs. They confront you with counterevidence and counterargument.”

NO, NO, NO, NO, NO.

This is the same stupid myth as “robust debate” or “academic freedom”.

Interaction is the solution, but CONFRONTATION is NOT part of the solution.

When you WORK with people of different types and beliefs on a SHARED PROJECT with a SHARED GOAL, the different types simply don’t enter into the picture. There is no confrontation, no counterevidence, no counterargument, no counternothing. All of that countershit fades into the background when everyone is MAKING THINGS or SERVING the same purpose.

Our problem is that we have stopped MAKING THINGS and deleted all SHARED PROJECTS, including military conscription.

LIFE IS PURPOSE.
