The Huffman Corollary: Does it Predict Our Doom?

This from a Q&A at the WashPo by Kevin Huffman:

“My worry is that we increasingly live in a world where people can’t agree on a common fact base. And if you can’t agree on facts – not how to respond to them, but the facts themselves – it’s hard to see how you ever get to agreement on justice or urgency.”

The above paragraph said a lot to me.  I am also concerned about our ability to respond, collectively, to the  immense problems we face.  What do you bloggers think?
