    Really interesting read. The author of the article really makes some great points. Reasons vs. emotions. Reasoning......

    Seems like an exercise in mental masturbation. But then, it is the Atlantic.

    LOL! @GOG
    I love this line- we can't reason without our emotions, because without our emotions, we can't have a reason to reason.
    I am waiting for someone to tell me to check my emotions at the door. I do not know how many times someone has told me to leave emotion out of it. IMO if I didn't care about it one way or another, I would just keep going.

    We're somewhat short on true citizens, but overwhelmed by the heavily deluded or somnolent. Then there's the literati/media composed of mostly useful idiots who actively participate in the Kabuki. Do real people give a sh!t what they think?
