We dismiss the contrarian. We ridicule the eccentric purist. We hold strong to our first instinct and our entitlements. Our thoughts are beyond reproach. And we are wrong on every account. We can be fooled. We will be fooled, time and again. We need more than ever to reconsider, to accept our folly, to consider evolving information. What is right may alter. There is more strength in the ability to change than there is in anchoring in the ignorant conviction to remain the same.
Anyone can be fooled. A fool pretends otherwise.
