Hypocrisy Budget

From The Portal Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The idea that every individual is entitled to a certain degree of hypocrisy. In an online world, signing yourself up for being for truth, for goodness, for consistency is dooming yourself to fail. There's no possible way that you're going to leave a trail that isn't going to contradict itself many times over. We must allow ourselves and each other a budget of hypocrisy because imperfections and evolution are intrinsic aspects of being human.
