    Sorry, prejudice is part of human perception. It’s not baffling, and only maddens when one takes it seriously. We *must* pre-judge or what we perceive is meaningless. That’s why the arguments over trivia are so fierce. It’s not that just particular issue that irritates, it’s that disagreement shakes the foundations of an entire view of the world.
