  1. Re: “Facts have no agenda. They can’t be racist or sexist or bias in any way. They can’t be softened or changed to avoid offence. They just are.”

    In the same vein: Feelings have an agenda. They can be racist, sexist, and biased in many ways. They are always on the lookout for offending statements from others and don’t care one whit whether those statements are facts or opinions. Feelings matter every bit as much as facts because people act on them.

  3. I appreciate that, actually I noticed the traffic coming in from twitter and had to go dig up what was going on. I do have some new posts brewing actually. I took a couple dark triad tests and figured I might as well discuss that and some other interesting things.

  4. Also, my last sentence above is better put as “Feelings CAN matter every bit as much as facts…” because anything that moves people to action can cause change. I see facts as most effective when combined with feeling generating interpretations: anecdotes, allegories, even a dirty limerick =)
