Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my thoughts, feelings, and opinions. Enjoy!

Change Your Mind

Change Your Mind

"Strong opinions, weakly held" - Paul Saffro

18 year-old Jeff was a pain in the ass. He loved Bill O'Reilly and making fun of "hippie liberals."

21-year-old Jeff was even worse. He had just finished Atlas Shrugged. Ayn Rand had all of the answers and government just needed to get out of the way.

A single conversation led me to ditch my libertarian beliefs. I was arguing for a flat tax, and my cousin told me to look up "marginal propensity to consume."

I researched it for the next four hours. After I emerged from my Wikipedia rabbit hole, I realized my old beliefs no longer held up. (Thanks Mark!)

I do this all the time. If I were a politician I'd be accused of flip-flopping. Why do we applaud people for holding the same viewpoint forever?

When was the last time you changed your mind on something?
