I know I argued with you about the more "hot take" version of this, but I actually 100% agree with the longer version in your blog post.

Especially this part:

> Doublethink quickly steps in to protect your ego from the cognitive dissonance, and you take another little step towards becoming the person you once swore never to be.

Don't underestimate the power of cognitive dissonance!

@codesections and you keep posting more good comments yet :)

@sir unrelated: how did you achieve the curly-quote (’) in the toot?

@sir my brother gave an excellent talk similar to this a couple years ago

It's about the ethics class we should have gotten, and uses Stephen King's "The Dark Tower" to explain. Good talk, of course I'm biased tho.

@sir This is something I've been mulling over for a while, and have been having many discussions about with friends arguing both sides. You've put words to it that I've found helpful - thanks, very interesting post.
