How To Change Your Mind
20 ways I have changed my mind between 2013 to 2023
Comrades: The days are long, but the decades are short.

Today, I will reflect on 20 topics I have changed my mind about compared to 2013. What are major issues you have changed your mind about and why? In 2033, what will have changed our minds about relative to 2023?
In 2013, I was one of the few people left who refused to upgrade to a smartphone. I found it strange how people were building audiences and monetizing them on social media networks. Now I write an anon Substack and have a smartphone that I use too much.
In 2013, I thought NYC was the greatest city in the world and could not imagine living anywhere else. Now I am glad to have moved away and don’t miss it at all. With mixed emotions, I observe its death spiral from afar.
In 2013, I read MSM publications like NYT, Economist, New Yorker. Now I don’t read any MSM hoaxes and stick to Substack/X.
In 2013, I thought that liberals were compassionate and tolerant. Now I see that they are hateful and intolerant.
In 2013, I believed that the US was a force for good in the world and was net positive helping Iraq, Afghanistan, etc. Now I see how destructive our foreign policy is.
