You can’t change someone’s mind with a tweet

Here’s the problem about explaining how to solve complex problems on Twitter:

There is more than one answer to the question.

Climate change, the pandemic, gun control, the border, universal healthcare, government and politics, education, the prison system–every major area in our lives needs radical change.

Yet, we think we have the answer if people would just listen. The hubris, right?

Each of us (including myself) think we are rational actors. The reality is we are all biased in how we see the world. We have blind spots, lack the education and ignore the data to fit a narrative.

I feel like the conversation we should be have is learning to see.

You can’t see until you learn how to see. And then we can discuss the solution.
