It’s sad when people go off like that guy did about things they don’t seem to understand well. I don’t think it’s about convincing anyone that they’re right. It seems to be about a twisted notion of power. And it is power. People who don’t value truth, investigation, and proof have put like-minded people in the US Congress, and a pathological liar in the White House for them to support.
How do we fight willful ignorance when logic and open-hearted approaches have no effect? Fighting fire with fire just burns everything down, but I’m hearing frustrated people go there when I’m not even sure where ‘there’ is. Plugging away is feeling strange these days.
