If only that were strictly true.
Idiology is intrinsic to human nature. To elaborate/clarify, we are not strictly logical creatures. You don't have to look very far to see this is true. We have all sorts of "religions". Some involve churches, others involve politics. Where humans exist, so does factionalism. And we don't generally debate our differences in a calm and logical manner. If we did, there would be a lot more consensus in the world.
It is highly dangerous to assume we are logical creatures. In my opinion it is a fallacy of the worst sort. Positive change will come when we acknowledge and work to compensate for our flaws.
Thats my 2 cents anyway.
