Well Contested and Deliberated Decisions are the Feedstock for a Healthy Democracy

As frustrating as it may be, our politics is seeing a better-quality contest of ideas:  

“The most reliable cure for confirmation bias is interaction with people who don’t share your beliefs. They confront you with counterevidence and counterargument. John Stuart Mill said, “He who knows only his own side of the case, knows little of that,” and he urged us to seek out conflicting views “from persons who actually believe them.” People who think differently and are willing to speak up if they disagree with you make you smarter, almost as if they are extensions of your own brain.”



What do you think?
