Rationalism has its merits. However, for me helping my fellow citizens understand how tolerance and compassion make us stronger makes it easier for them to let go of the Utopian vision of rationalism and control.

However, these are messy and crowdsourced ideas and not quite rational…more touchy-feelie than rationalism allows but still real…IMO
