The folly of American intellectualism.

Critical analysis versus judgment.

One is concerned with discovering what is authentic and true.  The other with being right.

One is the vehicle for endless learning, connecting dots and drawing out implications.  The other is a vehicle for asserting yourself, creating division and establishing the inadequacy of others.

One is not concerned with being wrong.  The other can never be wrong.

One is the source for wisdom and insight.  The other, for righteousness.

One listens and looks closely.  The other jumps quickly and talks loudly.  

Everyone is entitled to an opinion, but do we really need to hold onto it so tightly?
