I’ve often thought that the three most important things that I learned a little about during my “formal” education were typing, statistics, and logic. I claim no mastery in these areas, but I was exposed to them; and a lifetime of benefit was gained. There is a political element to my interest in logic, for I have noticed that logic plays an amazingly small role with those on the political left. The political left teems with those who view issues first and foremost as they “want” them to be, not first and foremost according to objective facts. In contrast, the political right teems with those who view issues first and foremost according to objective facts, not first and foremost according to personal “wants” and “feelings.” This is a rather bold statement, but I see evidence of its correctness nearly everyday. My goal is to side with facts over “feelings” and let the pieces fall where they may. The truth is what it is; truth is not what we “want” it to be.

Logic is a beautiful thing…
