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.

    Perhaps, but it may be as old as mankind.
