The high price of always being nice to others

We have often heard about someone from our group of acquaintances saying something like this: “She is very polite and kind”, “She never speaks loudly or curses”, “She is very respectful of the opinions of others”, or “It’s nice to work with her because he never argues.” That is how people refer to someone who never poses problems or generates conflicts in their personal relationships.

China continues to regret their one-child policy

Socioeconomic conditions are vital for appropriate cognitive development

Cómo libertarte del tribalismo, el pensamiento grupal, la polarización política, y el pensamiento heurístico

Realmente no se puede negar que estamos en un momento de profunda división política. Con todo, desde los procedimientos de juicio político de Donald Trump hasta un polémico ciclo electoral que comenzó tan pronto como terminaron las elecciones de 2016, parece que de hecho nos hemos convertido en la república dividida que temían los fundadores estadounidenses. Aunque hay muchas razones para ser optimistas sobre el futuro, existen fuerzas psicológicas ...Read full article...

A inutilidade da democracia

Apesar do que descreve a sabiduria popular de que a democracia é o melhor estado para os países e seus povos, a democracia é frequentemente confundida com o modelo atual de repúblicas democráticas, que é o que muitos fundadores de nações imaginavam.
