(A brief note on enterprise-architecture and the like that came up over the Christmas break.)

Emotions are facts.

Feelings are facts.

(Subjective facts, it’s true, yet facts nonetheless.)

Assertions about emotions and feelings – in particular, about what Self or Other ‘should’ or ‘should not’ feel – are not facts.

(They’re just opinions – nothing more than that.)

It’s scary how many people get this one the wrong way round…
