It’s possible, and I’d argue necessary, to deem certain beliefs, words and actions as more helpful, good, wise or even plain old coherent than others. It’s possible and necessary to rationally judge some behaviors and principles to be more hurtful, evil or unwise than others. And it’s possible to do that even though not one of us is anything but a mixed bag of good and bad, wise and foolish, helpful and destructive, coherent and a hopeless jumble of inconsistency. The art of thinking assists us in recognizing and valuing certain ideas and actions as good, true and proper, no matter who espouses them. Rightly valuing, respecting and even loving other people, even if they espouse goofy ideas or make awful blunders, is an art that requires more than even proper thinking can provide.
