I totally agree that people reverse engineer their reasoning for decisions they “make.” But I have one criticism on the organ donor situation. I AM an opt-in donor. I have been ever since I became a driver. So, for that study, if you had put me in the opt-out group, I would not have opted out. But my reasoning afterwards would not be me reverse engineering my decision because had I happened to end up in the opt-in group, I would have CHOSEN to opt-in.

I have relatives who live in Soweto and I visit them quite regularly, I have asked almost everyone about the one week funeral cover and no one seems to know about it.

I find it hard to believe that there could be such a (one weak) funeral cover. Great interview, nonetheless.

It would be wonderful to live in an honest, loving and sane world, where people don’t cheat and lie, where we develop our empathy and imagination so we can understand how it would feel to be on the receiving end of a lie or the victim of a cheater. Envision HOW it would feel if it was happening to you, we need to have compassion for other beings. Lies are born from fear – fear is the opposite of love, courage will help the world to become more loving. Be brave, be honest, be loving.
