In this day and age of a 24 hour news cycle and social media, people have learned to survive by a simple maxim.  "Don't think, just react"

This is my belief from teaching an online college course about analytical reasoning and moral judgments.  Here are the first reactions to moral dilemmas presented to my students: 

  1. "how does this make me feel" or..
  2. what comes to mind first 

In reality, we need to assume "maybe I do not have all of the information."

 

There is a wealth of information at our fingertips.  Knowing where to find this information and/or how to apply it can help the simple maxim "don't think, just react" evolve to "what is the bigger picture?".
