Action over opinion is one of the values of OrganicDesign (the Platform specification includes a process of alignment with it) Information about something directly is more valuable than peoples opinion about that thing. The evolution of our system that we organise ourselves in accord with (and in fact of any organisation's system) should be evolving based on objective facts about its direction, state and the effects it has on others, not on opinions about those things.

Thomas Robertson talks about this aspect in Human Ecology - Understanding mechanisms.

Self perspective

Information about yourself directly is more valuable than what you think about yourself.

Your true beliefs are not what you think they are.
