You're exhibiting the classic -- "The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt."

But you really need to avoid being paralyzed by indecisiveness.

There are mountains of evidence that Trump and his cronies lie all the time. There are videos of them saying contradicting things -- straight from the horses mouth as the saying goes. No need to `struggle`.

I would go much farther than that. The attitude being exhibited here is "mind so open your brains fall out".

The "prior probability" of human nature is called history. You can't look at every event as if it's happening in isolation. This fetishization of the middle ground is intellectually lazy.

> intellectually lazy

EXACTLY! It's so easy to use "I want to be neutral" as an excuse for not weighing the evidence.

Thank you for saying that!

Hardly an excuse to make bad decisions. Howe is being genuinely unsure a bad thing?
