On civilized debate, by Paul Graham

Here’s an essay about humility in the face of much that we don’t know.  Except that the author, Paul Graham, titled it “Keep your identity small.”

No, Paul has (as far as I can guess) little to do with Graham crackers.

But he says we ought to avoid labelling ourselves, lest we look “dumb” to others.  Unless, of course, like Nassim Taleb, you call yourself a limo driver.
