Re: Globalisation (Southern Man)
Diversity of thinking” IS a goal to be desired.
The pooled knowledge of the time said the sun moved around the earth, one man said differently and got a hearing for others.
The pooled knowledge said "time was absolute" someone said something different.
The pooled knowledge said "lets bleed our patients they have too much blood", one man said differently.
I could go on forever.
And although you used simplistic examples like 2+2=4, someone, someday, might disagree, but that's another story.
