Why are some sources of authority more alluring than others?
The greatest distinction between facts and values is that facts don’t spur us to action. Values do.
We know that no movie that is “based on a true story” is ever the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. The editors decide what stays in, what gets cut, and what order the story should be told in. What we forget is that our lives are “based on a true story,” as well.
