"Changing someone’s beliefs, even when there is an unassailable right
and wrong, is among the hardest problems people ever face. It is much
harder than calculus or quantum physics. But if we start from a
mistaken presumption that those who are wrong are wrong because of a
character defect—because they are crazy, stupid, selfish, or lazy—then
changing their belief becomes near impossible."
A very important article on dealing with people who have different
beliefs, even counterfactual ones. Via Muse.
