Logical Arguments Vs. Tribal Decisions

Making Rational Decisions In An Emotional World

logical arguments and tribal decisions

We’re on break! We’re taking a little time to catch our breath and refresh the format of the The Together Show. In the meantime, we’re reading essays—usually those we publish at Together Magazine.

I wrote today’s essay after thinking about the following quotations:

“In the end, reconciliation is a spiritual process, which requires more than just a legal framework. It has to happen in the hearts and minds of people.”

– Nelson Mandela

“Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all the others.”

– Winston S. Churchill

The essay is called Logical Arguments vs. Tribal Decisions. This is my first public writing on any aspect of politics, and I’d love your feedback.

Please don’t be shy about letting us know if you have any ideas for what you’d like to see in our next iteration. We love hearing from you. You can email Erik at host@together.guide. Or contact us on our Facebook page, Twitter or on Instagram @together_show.

    How very interesting.. BUT, as a 37 yo black transwoman–I am probably more apt to dating a male that is divorced as given our current social construct that individual is a little more “free” in his sexual identity. He also possesses more knowledge and awareness on his likes and dislikes in the bedroom and is desirably unapologetic for it..

      True point. Nothing like a divorce to free people from the constraints of doing what they thought they were supposed to.
