Five Signs You Might Be Irrational About Politics

Speaking at TEDxMileHigh, philosopher Michael Huemer lists a few signs that you might be irrational about politics:

  1. Do you become angry during political discussions?
  2. Do you have strong opinions about a subject before acquiring relevant empirical evidence?
  3. Do your opinions fail to change as you acquire more evidence?
  4. Do you seek information only from sources already agree with?
  5. Do you think that people who disagree with you must be evil?

Huemer writes on topics including philosophical skepticism, free will, moral intuition, and ethics.
