He challenged me to think about all the people who were for this person or that person or this entity or whatever. No matter what horrible thing about the person or the entity comes to light, people tend to hold their line. They maintain their opinion and their position on an issue or on a person even when they’re hit with an avalanche of intel on the subject.
Why is this? Are people stubborn. Are people that fixed, they can’t see where they’ve made a wrong judgement and change their mind about something? Or about someone?
Is it because they want to keep (save) their face? Is it lack of humility? Inability to say, I was wrong about this and that, to themselves or others? Is it because they don’t want to feel regret? Is it because they don’t want someone, some authority figure they resent, to be right. Would they rather fight than switch?
I don’t have a fixed chart. Show me evidence of something and I will get on the side of the truth, quickly. I’ll tell you what people tend to say, when they want to deny the truth and stick with the like.
“I don’t care.”
