Well...this too is true.
Thinking is hard stuff. I'm still learning how to do it, and I work at it every day.
And, sure, confirmation bias is the rule rather than the exception. But have you ever tried to spend the day reading 'the enemy's propaganda'? My blood pressure goes through the roof.
But well conceived and constructed arguments which I start out disagreeing with do sway me over time. If you've learned how to think, and you follow the evidence, then eventually you become a slave to it. I mean...that's the whole point, isn't it; to let the truth be more powerful than your prejudices?
