This is contradictory.

An example of how illogical reasoning can be good is when I vote to give away some of my hard-earned money to poor people (i.e., taxation and redistribution policies). There's no logical basis to give away my money to people I don't know and hold no connection with, but if we refer to my emotions then it makes perfect sense.
