decluttering? There’s always more to do.

This year? “De-clutter my bonnet collection. When was the last time I wore that thing?”

- “steelman” the views of others when I take issue with them

- refrain from replicating ‘outrage’ memes. Though this is slippery because sometimes the interesting news stories contain an element of outrageousness.

- avoid ‘whataboutism’ and arguments about arguments.

- avoid unbalanced charges of hypocrisy, knowing the equal and opposite change almost certainly applies as well


What does "steelman" mean?
