    Why do you have a motto on common sense on the front page of your website?

    • Tom J. Andersen says:

      The pilot project documented that qualified opinion formation is a general ability due to all 71 participants in the reference group, except two, were able to make comments of adequate quality.
      The presence of this universal property, is a prerequisite for the concept of common sense.
      In a pamphlet “Common Sense” Thomas Paine in 1776 carried out a relentless analysis of the English royal house and its history of exploitation of the population and irresponsible warfare. He deprived it of all honour and all rights to rule over the new world – America.
      Thomas Paine’s polemical pamphlet became the most influential political pamphlet of the 18th century, affecting both the American and French revolutions thus paving the way for constitutional democracies.
      His argument based on obvious facts was, according to the RETEPPTM pilot study, available to all citizens with intelligence within the normal range – if they agreed with his conclusions or not is another matter.

    Is opinion formation fundamental to something personal or is it a social function?

    • Tom Andersen says:

      I think, that opinion formation is an indirect statement of the talking person’s placement in a social network more than it is an expression of personal characteristics.
      No meaning floats in a void, but is always visibly or concealed connected to a social group that the person actually or imagined relates to.
      Without the audience without belongingness – no need and no reason to express yourself.
