Note to Self - Remember this
Where "Values" Come From
I remember this from a few years ago and wanted to pin it down while I remember it. It is from an All in with Chris Hayes with Chris Mooney and Haidt who, while having slightly different conclusions both agreed on camera that people decide first what to believe and then find the evidence to support it.
And a forum that articulated it well...
As the host explains, we don't reason in the way that we to tend to believe that we do. We arrive at conclusions through values and intuition, then use reason to construct a rationale.
