#59 / The Equivalence Mistake

There is, in physics, an "equivalence principle." Click the image to read something about it.

In politics, there is what I think of as the "equivalence mistake."

We tend to equate "reality" with what "is." In politics, take a poll and you know what "is."

"Reality," however, while encompassing whatever exists, includes also what is potential. Reality is, in other words, also what we make it.
