The Truth Is A Revolutionary Act

...The second virtue is relinquishment. P. C. Hodgell said: “That which can be destroyed by the truth should be.” Do not flinch from experiences that might destroy your beliefs. The thought you cannot think controls you more than thoughts you speak aloud."

From "Twelve Virtues of Rationality"
Eliezer Yudkowsky
