Are all beliefs blind beliefs?
Muse #487 - the fittest of the options
We talked about “true” yesterday. Today we continue about beliefs. Every belief is a blind belief. And that would be a strong statement to make. Since, by design, we are limited by what we know.
Every belief is blind to what one does not know. An outside observer might be able to observe the blindness, but the blind don’t see what they don’t see. So for them, it is just what they see or believe in. It is certainly not a blind belief as they are not aware of their blindness.
It is the rare ones who go after their own beliefs. Trying to acquire multiple perspectives and accepting that each perspective is right in its own context helps one have context-sensitive options. And might alleviate some of the blindness or perhaps be a little less blind at best. And this might help find answers that are fitter for the purpose that they require it for - balancing the best of justice, morals, and ethics.
