A Short Message to Your Leader Part 2

Monday's post, posted the question, if I could send a short message to my countries leaders, what would I say?

I have already stated that a simple "Don't be evil" is a wasted opportunity. Similarly I don't want to waste the opportunity by writing abuse (though there is a part of me that would want to).

Part of me is sympathetic to the idea of the 'philosopher king', but considering the number of politicians who studied PPE, increasing a politicians knowledge of philosophy would be unlikely to change much.

My final though would be something around looking for evidence. And ideally, something that would help curb confirmation bias. So my answer if I were to be asked again today:

If you were wrong, how would you know?
