When we try to judge objectively and weighting only compare the object or person judged by our own idealized image.
Let's assume we all want to be balanced, fair, weighted, moderate, fair, even-handed, fair, reasonable, righteous, neutral, objective.
We all want to be balanced, etc., But can we? Is our nature allows us to have that feature?
My answer is no, that is: Human beings can not be balanced, etc..
What basis do I be so pessimistic? I base this on the following reasoning:
To make a judgment is necessary to evaluate the data for and against the object or person on trial.
The survival instinct that governs us distorts our ability to assess hazards and overestimates it almost ignores the non-dangerous.
In other words, when we try to weigh two data, one in favor and one against, although both weigh one gram our intellect understand how dangerous it weighs a kilo and that no dangerous weighs nothing.
We are unable to judge balance because all quantitative evaluations end altered by its qualitative features.
The poor intellect tends to assume, with excessive optimism, we can be objective, neutral, reasonable, but no, we can not.
Nature built us installing them conservation mechanisms of the individual and the species that ignore the ideas and opinions that we have. Nature is like a bullet train, where passengers can do and think what they want without thereby stopping the vehicle, change your address or do not reach the scheduled destination.
When we criticize or judge others only imagine to be objective, balanced and fair. When we try to judge objectively and weighting only compare the object or person judged by our own idealized image, not with our own real image.
