This is a most excellent Ted Talk by Margaret Heffernan about Disagreeing as thinking, which as certainly made me think along. It is my belief that we have to often ignored what is right in front of us because it makes us uncomfortable to think about it, or even to think about how it could be different. A lot like the Elephant in the room syndrome no?
Not only that but Miss Margaret Heffernan is wonderfully spoken.
Much to contemplate!
