On an unrelated note

I am always surprised when people don’t care whether something they say is true. Often enough, it doesn’t even seem to occur to people to ask themselves whether  something they say is true, as though the fact they find a  thought in their head establishes its truth. Though I suppose being oblivious to the question is better, in some ways, than being indifferent.

As a people myself, I may well do what I criticize here. If and when I do, I’d like to think it’s only because I’m oblivious.
