Its too bad...

...Mr. Falkenstein is "retiring" from active blogging...I will miss observations like this:

Most debates are like the one on Global Warming, where not a single person is an expert on all the arguments, and in the end it becomes a weighting of myriad consistent and inconsistent datapoints, where the weighting is a function of one's common sense: every argument has some supporting and inconsistent data. In such cases people can't help but let their higher preferences guide this weighting, why pro and anti government people clearly cleeve on this seemingly factual issue. This tends to make arguing less productive.
