Never try to address a problem without first having a proposed real-time solution that can satisfy every contingency. I came upon two bodies who were in a somewhat heated political debate. One was red in the face with veins poking from their neck, shouting and spitting swearwords in a very harsh manner. The other appeared cool, calm, and collected, trying to answer genuinely the rattled hothead who was rude and unruly. Which one do you suppose is more tethered to reality and fact? Which one is probably more true to their actual beliefs? Who appears to be more confident? If a person builds a mental castle or an empire of personal codes upon vacuous unworkable ideas, it can only be spurious, at best; Many will try to bombastically defend their warmed-over delusions in a way that betrays a fundamental flaw they secretly intuit but are trying their damnedest to pretend isn't there.
