  • I'm just gonna come out and ask...

    What does 'CW' mean? I figure it means the stuff we have been told all our lives which may not necessarily be so, or it refers to a carb laden diet; but I haven't been able to get it contextually. The best thing I have come up with is 'current wisdom', or something with 'carb' for the C. And neither of those seem quite right.

    If memory serves it is conventional wisdom. The things we have been told all our lives and accepted as the truth.

          Conventional wisdom, once defined by the economist John Kenneth Galbraith as "that body of beliefs that is solemnly, assiduously, and mindlessly traded among the pretentiously wise."
