What the MLB Uniform Fiasco Says About How We Process Reality

My Substack article this week is a think piece about how the reaction to the current MLB uni fiasco mirrors the way people respond to other controversies in modern life, all of which I find worrisome.

You can read the first part of the article here. In order to read the entire thing, you’ll need to become a paid subscriber to my Substack (which will also get you full access to my Substack archives). My thanks, as always, for your consideration.

    A very recognizable and in the meantime global situation that goes far beyond the issue of malfunctioning MLB uniforms. If somebody is telling us something that we do not want to hear or to know or to learn from we simply ignore or attack this opposite opinion viciously and stick to the ‘facts’ that we like and the people expressing exactly the opinions that we like. Not bothered by objective proof, scientific findings or what is actually unfolding right in front of all of us to see. Not willing to accept that there might be opinions that differ from ours but deserve the same respect as our opinion. It is decency and democracy versus self-imposed ignorance and a winner takes all craving for totalitarianism. A very dangerous and divisive development and I am glad Paul is addressing this in his article.

    yeah well said. This is a problem we’ve faced before with older media like the rise of yellow journalism in the early 1900s but never to this extent. It’s never been easier to avoid unpleasant truths than it is now.

    In terms of the broader issue Paul raises, the answer is that reality itself is tribal now.
