It’s a bold thing to call reason a trap. After all, if you can’t state your case with reason, how can you state a case at all? Yet, I insist reason is a trap. Care to know why?
We have knighted reason — and with good cause. It towers above lesser states of being, states like guilt or apathy, grief or fear, anger or pride. It even surpasses some more desirable states like courage, willingness, and acceptance. Yes, being reasonable is a great place to be.
