Debate without understanding, polemic without insight: why are they so much in fashion?
- Because they are so much easier than the arduous but rewarding task of understanding, which would change our lives and our behaviour.
- Because they are spectator sports like boxing. We are there for the thrill of the knockout and the blood on the mat.
- Because we can go back to our lives afterwards and nothing has changed.
- Because they relieve us of the obligation of ‘doing’ something.
