Let's make it easier to admit mistakes.

June 15, 2017

We need to make it easier to admit mistakes when we are talking politics. The extreme polarization and hardcore partisan identification make acknowledging a change of mind a matter of pride more than about the issues themselves. We can start by renouncing the hypocrisy to which we are all vulnerable in these contentious times. The hypocrisy test is just 2 hypothetical questions: If the person I vehemently support does something that I believe is wrong, will I acknowledge that? And if the person I oppose does something that I believe is good, will I acknowledge that? As long as we decide to believe or agree with something simply based on who says it, we are not really having a conversation; we are just locking horns. Respectfully welcoming admission of mistake and changes of mind and heart is at least a start to the bigger changes we need to make together.
