When I sit down and think about it, it seems to be worse to understand than to know. To know is to think you are right, but to understand is just to think you know that you think you’re right. Since neither side is absolute, it seems to me that a shorter path is better. This is because I personally think that in the process of moral and ethical decisions, the quicker you come to a conclusion, the better your conclusion is. After all, you can logically justify anything if you think about it long enough. Though I realize these are unpopular ideas.
