Common Sense

Any rational human being must be willing to challenge and test their convictions if they expect to find truth among them. If one is hesitant to do so, perhaps they already know their system of thought will not stand up to the necessary level of scrutiny. One must be willing to accept the possibility that they are entirely wrong. The scientific approach must be taken to ensure delusion and stupidity cannot masquerade as truth and reality. The human mind must be open to changing. Opinions, by nature, need to be malleable. Your reasoning is not infallible, and therefore is subject to questioning and examination. You are wasting your ability to think if you never look around you and ask “Why?”

That’s just common sense. But then again, “common sense never has been, and never will be, common.”
