    Narrative paradigms. Including you.

      I could do a whole other diary on how people on the left also try to fit events within their own pre-conceived narrative paradigms. We all do it. It's how humans make sense of the world.

      I like to think, however, that liberals are a bit more open-minded, and more willing to let the evidence take them to the appropriate conclusions. However, that could be my own narrative paradigm.

      What's important is to be aware of how we are always trying to fit facts into pre-existing narrative constructs. That is the only way we can hope to break free of them.
