Evidence-Based Everything (but let's do the basing properly)
19th Oct 2018 18:30 | The London School of Economics and Political Science
Statements can be significant despite being “statements of the bleedin’ obvious”.

It is surely “bleedin’ obvious” that our views (and hence our policies) ought to be based on evidence; but Hume’s claim is important exactly because it is so often ignored in practice. In these Trumpish times of disinformation and fake news; people’s views seem more and more to be based on what they would like to be true rather than on any evidence that they are in fact true.
