  •  How can you break the circle? (0+ / 0-)

    Doesn't anyone know?

    •  i have a few ideas. (0+ / 0-)

      Basically it comes down to this:

      Emotion leads, and reason follows.   Understand that and you understand a major chunk of human psychology.   Emotions make decisions, and reason explains the decisions.
