Sometimes people hold a core belief that is very strong

When they are presented with evidence that works against that belief

the new evidence cannot be accepted

It would create a feeling that is extremely uncomfortable

called cognitive dissonance

And because it is so important to protect the core belief

they will rationalize, ignore and even deny anything that doesn't fit in

with the core belief..


~ Frantz Fanon ~ (1925-1961)

Martinique-born Afro-French psychiatrist, philosopher, revolutionary, and writer



I am now quite sure that 'Tragedy and Hope' was suppressed although
I do not know why or by whom. ~ C.Quigley ~
