More on the pyschologogy of polarised arguments (this from an article about the upcoming EU vote in the UK).

"People say they want facts, but in truth they want facts that support their existing views and demolish those who disagree with them. Facts are swords and shields, not tools of persuasion. (We of course think none of this applies to us, being thoughtful, open-minded and supremely reasonable.)"

We should bear this in mind in discussions. :)
