Can Prejudice and Bias ever be a Good Thing? TED-Talk Paul Bloom.

“I think prejudice and bias illustrate a fundamental duality of human nature. We have gut feelings, instincts, emotions, and they affect our judgements and our actions for good and for evil, but we are also capable of rational deliberation and intelligent planning and we can use these too, in some cases, accelerate and nourish our emotions, and in other cases staunch them. And it is in this way, that reason helps us create a better world”. Paul Bloom
