To Change a Viewpoint, Change a Belief

Seth Godin's article Bad Judgment led to some mini-revelations:

  1. Those who disagree with us don't do so out of sheer stubbornness, but out of sincere beliefs.

  2. If we can change their beliefs, we can change their actions.

  3. Isn't changing beliefs what preaching/teaching is all about?

  4. Seth really wrote about two kinds of bad judgment:

    • That of our opponents, which may not be bad judgment at all.
    • That of ourselves, in judging our opponents' opposition to be bad judgment.
