Doubt

At various points in time and space, on the Internet and elsewhere, I have expressed an adherence to the cause of Doubt.

Radicalism is dangerous. In all its forms. Radicalism arises from certainty.

“I am certain you are wrong, therefore I am certain of my right to destroy you.”

When have temperance and uncertainty caused wars?

If I am unsure of the reasons for engaging in conflict with you, then I am unlikely to engage in conflict with you.

That’s not to say that we shouldn’t have beliefs. Better, however, to temper our beliefs with…

“You may be right, but…”

Then again…

… I might be wrong.
