"I will never read this book because it goes against the worldview I've been taught, (but how do I know this fact if I've never read the book)."
"Insert religion here is a false religion (although I've never been exposed to any teachings of said religion, so I can't make an informed, objective opinion)."
"I am a security expert, yet I never question the underlying assumptions or authority of any institution or person of significant authority."
"I am a human being who will live and eventually die just like everyone else. I make others right or wrong depending upon my own beliefs and assumptions (when it would be wiser to just let them be). I wish to make the World a better place, (but how can I do that when I don't know which choice is right or the greater Good)."
Well, if you are not sure what to do, don't act. Just observe without judgement? Who said you must act or react all the time.
No action, no reaction. Newton's third law.
What about free will? Is there such a thing as free will?
