Update and grow

We use labels like ‘thief’ and ‘robber’ in connection with them, but what do these words mean? They merely signify that people are confused about what is good and what is bad. So should we be angry with them, or should we pity them instead?

I make my own mistakes and if I know better I’d choose better.

If my knowledge about how the world works gets updated then I can make better choices. This is an Bayesian approach.

Don’t prefer opinions to the truth. 

I want to realize that other people make their own mistakes. If they knew better, they to would choose better.
