Everyone Has An Ideology.

I am not a "pragmatist," but sometimes I feel that my ideology is not coherent. RT @NYTimeskrugman: Everyone Has An Ideology http://nyti.ms/eYPAHy

"[E]veryone has (a) values and (b) some view about how the world works. And there’s nothing wrong with that."

The above is what the title of his essay means. I suppose that everybody accepts the plausibility of that perspective. Krugman does not hide his "ideology" in his writing, and I like reading his analysis based on data. He is a great teacher who can make us notice the importance of economics and logical or hypothetical thinking.

"A Fair Witness is an individual trained to observe events and report exactly what he or she sees and hears, making no extrapolations or assumptions." http://bit.ly/hRjjJJ

This is a very interesting profession in "Stranger in a Strange Land."
