Does anyone have an example of a story which is used to illustrate that what we take as fact is often a mixture of our emotions, value judgements, assumptions etc/ I heard one on a programme I attended and would like to find others.

  1. judgment
    i am not sure if this is the kind of thing that you are looking for, but i received this e-mail this morning which is questioning judgements.

    Question #1
    If you knew a woman who was pregnant, who had 8 kids already, three who were
    deaf, two who were blind, one mentally retarded, and she had syphilis; would you recommend that she have an abortion?
    Question #2:
    It is time to elect a new world leader, and your vote counts. Here are the facts about the three leading candidates.
    Candidate A: Associates with crooked politicians, and consults with astrologists. He’s had two mistresses. He also chain smokes and drinks 8 to 10 martinis a day.
    Candidate B: He was kicked out of office twice, sleeps until noon, used opium in college and drinks a quart of whisky every evening. Candidate C: He is a decorated war hero. He’s a vegetarian, doesn’t smoke, drinks an occasional beer and hasn’t had any extramarital affairs. Which of these candidates would be your choice?

    Candidate A is Franklin D. Roosevelt
    Candidate B is Winston Churchill
    Candidate C is Adolph Hitler

    And by the way: Answer to the abortion question – if you said yes, you just killed Beethoven.

    Interesting, Makes a person think before judging someone.

  2. Not a story but a video
    You could check out “Shift of Opinion” its a video of a meeting about introducing change. It was made by or for BACIE in 1969 but still seems to have very current messages. If you are interested mail me on
