THE MARKET FOR DECIDABILITY
When the ordinary person fails he appeals to associates.
When associates fail he appeals to superiors
When superiors fail he appeals to professionals
When professionals fail the appeals to thought leaders.
When instincts fail we appeal to familial ethics.
When familial ethics fail we appeal to virtue ethics.
When virtue ethics fail we appeal to rule ethics
When rule ethics fail we appeal to outcome ethics.
When intuition fails one must appeal to logic.
When logic fails, one must appeal to empiricism.
When empiricism fails one must appeal to operationalism.
When operationalism fails one must appeal to limits scope and parsimony.
When religion fails, one appeals to reason
When reason fails one appeals to philosophy
When philosophy fails, on appeals to science
When science fails, one appeals to testimony.
And the opposite is true.
We only have so much knowledge, and so much time, to satisfy the market for decidability in time for taking action.
