Like the choice between competing political institutions, that between competing paradigms proves to be a choice between incompatible modes of community life.  Because it has that character, the choice is not and cannot be determined merely by the evaluative procedures characteristic of normal science, for these depend in part upon a particular paradigm, and the paradigm is at issue.  When paradigms enter, as they must, into a debate about paradigm choice, their role is necessarily circular.  Each group uses its own paradigm to argue in that paradigm’s defense.

From his book:   “The Structure of Scientific Revolutions

How you react when the joke’s on you can reveal your character.
  —  Robert Half
[After two years in Office, Congress continues to refuse to fund a “wall” so President Trump declares a “national emergency” to divert funds from approved budgets.  When lies fail, steal.
