We can't help being emotional every now and then, though we know our irrationality damages our society and our lives. Yet, we can find out how our biases work, and how to avoid our idiocy as much as we can.
We think we can't help being prejudiced, being wrongly judged because of prejudices, and being manipulated by people who use our prejudices to their advantage. But, actually, we can help it, and we should, for the benefit of us all.
Losing it every now and then is quite devastating. Our relationships, bank accounts and figures tend not to be very forgiving. So conquering the demons that take over us can incredibly improve our life.
Our bitter illusion that each one to himself is shattered nowadays. We’re finding out that together we’ll live, or together we’ll die. A much more comforting feeling, actually. (Especially its living part.)
