It is impossible for a human being to go through life not thinking irrationally even if they think of themselves as rational
Also just as irrational decisions are not always bad then rational ones are not always good no matter what the intention

The rating of rationality can be higher and always is higher than the person trying to be rational. Rationality is less emotional than the person delivering it.

I too was expecting more from humanity as a whole in my lifetime, and I am disappointed.

It will be many millennia before those leaps are bounded.
