In order to accomplish (insert goal), it would require (insert number) year(s), ergo, we will not even begin because it would take too long.
I call it “contemporary bias”.
I had the funniest conversation with a lib-in-law one day,
and it wasn’t concerning politics, but food research.
She stated that “any research that is over 5 yrs old is worthless and wrong”.
“umm... do you see a problem with this? Doesn’t that mean that the information we’re relying on today will be, and more importantly, IS, worthless and wrong, if viewed from 5 yrs from now?”
“but it’s right today.”
I guess it’s a combination of the rejection of objective truth and contemporary bias.
