In “Never be for — or against” by David Warlick, the author basically just states a quote he heard while out and about- “If you want truth to stand clear before you, never be for or against. The struggle between ‘for’ and ‘against’ is the mind’s worst disease.” — Sent-ts’an. This quote struck me as very accurate. Taking sides prevents people from completely thinking something through. Because so often we take sides, the truth won’t come out, or will not be noticed. If we can clear the way for open-minded thinking, without sides, then more would get done. This is what matters to me in David Warlick’s “Never be for — or against”.
