I Thought I Was Wrong Once, But It Turns Out I Was Mistaken

    With GW B., that is a whole mentality, captured by the name of one book, but in this book the title is all ya need to read! Those folk are ‘dead certain,’ and the book, appropriately, is “Dead Certain.” (or dead right or something like that, but it does exist) I think of this as something like being nuts or psychotic. That’s a dead END, too. If you cannot be wrong, that would be the end of it, right? You are mentally finished. You cannot be wrong. That is what they are saying? They are sure about one thing. The one thing is that they are not allowed to be wrong, cuz – hey – dat’s impossible! Totally impossible. They CANNOT be wrong. So, they are crazy. That’s why I call them psychotic or something. Hmmm…… Well, they are dead certain about it, so they could be wrong, right, but their minds couldn’t change on that topic and see that one. SO itz a dead end. A ded en’. Any comments?

      Yeah, it is somewhat of a psychotic trait to believe yourself incapable of error. To find out you were wrong is the learn what is right, or more correct. That is cause for celebration. To stop learning is to stop growing mentally, so yes, I would consider that a dead end. 🙂

What say you?
