I think we as individuals need to understand what motivates us internally. Tribalism, confirmation bias, cognitive dissonance, etc. are happening to all of us, not just the people who we think are silly. We need to really check out our own value systems from time to time.
As a child, I remember a cartoon series based on Aesop’s Fables. One of my favorites was the fox and the sour grapes. I can remember getting a basic understanding from that cartoon. But later in life, it took on a whole new meaning.
We need more Aesop’s Fables.
