Here comes the judge

The Angel of Final Judgement
Execupundit reminds us that "nonjudgementalism" can be a lily-livered excuse to evade our responsibility to think. 

The same is true of judgementalism. 

Unlike judgement, which is a characteristic virtue, both "isms" are frames governing how we behave when we don't have enough information.

But how much information do we really need? That's a matter of judgement.
