Sometimes I read ideas that I agree with, and yet I feel somehow that I am violating the point by agreeing with it. For example, months ago, J.E. Sawyer wrote this rather excellent post about politics. I felt stupid posting a comment to say “I totally agree”, because I seemed to be committing the error of not critically considering the issue that Sawyer cautioned against. (I posted anyway.)
Now comes this post from Scott Adams which I find very persuasive and thought-provoking. And yet, in linking to it and expressing my agreement, am I not demonstrating the very lack of creativity he describes?
