Confucius vs tribalists

confucius-quotes-8 (1)

I must get the full picture

Know the importance of all factors in the situation, as best I can.

Before I conclude something.
Especially if I’m not involved in the situation personally.
My judgments on a person based on a group I assign him or her are just that:
My personal prejudice.
Based on tribalism.
Based on “it’s us against them”
Based on generalizations.

And reality is more complicated than generalizations.

Real knowledge is to know the extent of one’s ignorance.
