The Umbrella Ethic of Good Faith

The Umbrella Ethic of Good Faith

I'm concerned about the polarization in society lately, a trend that has been increasing for several years.

Sometimes a polar approach to certain issues may have some merit. The problem lies in an inability to understand the views of others (even though one may not agree). If one can see the mistakes that others make in their assumptions and perceptions, then one is more likely to be able to spot similar biases within one's own views.

I regularly update my beliefs and values. Underlying principles change very slowly, but new information can create a more nuanced understanding of certain issues that I previously had not considered or been aware of.

If we are to progress as a civilization it is essential that we learn to practice good faith.
