Letters on Liberty: In defence of contrarianism
Ali Miraj writes in defence of contrarians – those independent-minded people that eschew groupthink and speak out because they are convinced that they are right. Speaking truth to power is not for the faint-hearted, he writes, but our liberty depends on it. Ali argues that discussion and disagreement is valuable – indeed essential – for its own sake. While groupthink allows a distorted view of reality to develop unchallenged, Ali writes that contrarianism provides an antidote by opening up space for debate and the defence of freedom of speech.
