The Tao of Neutrality
October 12, 2008
As with everything, neutrality has a price. Neutral people tend to look foolish due to the lack prolixity and seem vulnerable due to the lack of opinion.
But in his speech, Jonathan Haidt speaks about the importance of being able to let go of personal value systems (liberalism/conservatism) and look at other people without animosity and xenophobia. In essence, becoming neutral. Because according to him, liberals and conservatives both play an important role in human civilization.
Hmmmm…. I’ll have to sleep on it.
P.S. Thank you Sachith for the edifying post.
