RT @RhysLindmark: Nice order of magnitude way to remember this graph/mindset:
- 50 million child deaths in 1800
- 5 million child deaths in 2018
- 500,000 child deaths today if the whole world achieved mortality rate of EU https://t.co/NVNChuNIoK
Is there a particular mental skill that allows people to acknowledge multiple statements at the same time like this? Because whatever it is, it seems to be really important. Somewhere recently I saw a quote from J.S. Mill saying that both sides of most political divisions could simply agree with most of the beliefs of the opposition while also keeping their own beliefs, and then most of the controversy would disappear.
Just accept ambiguity and Chuck out your anxiety. Tolerate, accept. A six looks like a nine the other way around. You can explain other world views in terms of your own world view if you have one that's robust enough.
"governments actions distort market signals, but don't private entities they crowd in/out distort market signals with information asymmetries? 'but ""information assymetry"" isn't backed up by force in a free market, the government will literally murder you if you don't obey them then resist arrest because you feel it is unjust' someone might say? Well, how about tobacco retailers or people secretly putting additive drugs in a faulty product" you might rebut. These back and forthes go on as infinitum as long as you are making formal propositions rather than relating observationalvevidence itself.
