I appreciate this article. It is, to me, always useful to find ways to organize one’s thoughts and information. I read and write everyday, and to do this I must have some level of organizing my mind. Given the chaos of Trump, etal, I find that my cognitive dissonance ‘department’ is severely over-taxed. (Altho, this has been an interesting ‘exercise’ as well — I can actually ‘feel’ myself choosing an ‘answer’ that is satisfying and soothing — and then saying ‘uh oh’!) Thanks for the ‘sorting’ exercise — I will use it to look for better understanding and context.
