Reasons are not Rational

Everyone has a reason for their actions. (If not, we can create one for them.) "Reason" is synonymous with rationality, but to be "reasonable" is to conform or compromise, not to use logic. To "have a reason" is to justify a subjective position that seldom includes air-tight dialectics.

In short, we privilege reason but mainly use it to excuse our lack of it.
