I think logic matters. I like good ‘ideas’ and have strong opinions on many subjects. I think my views are based on reasoned thought and I will defend them vigorously. I also respect good reasoning and know that I get ‘it’ wrong often and so am happy to have my opinions challenged and am willing to change them when given good reason to do so. This blog is a vehicle for me to make my views known. Setting up a blog is an act of arrogance – it suggests that you think that you have something worthy to tell others. My only defense is that I have been encouraged to launch this blog by people who think the arrogance is justified. I hope they are right.
