Action over opinion
is one of the values
(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.
Information about yourself directly is more valuable than what you think about yourself.
Your true beliefs are not what you think they are.
