The “Other Side” Is Not Dumb.
Sean Blanda

I don’t know how one can say “the other side is not dumb” as a universal theoretical, without any allowance for the infinite number of positions that the “other side” could be. You could argue that dumbness is always subjective, but if that’s the philosophical field you want to play on there isn’t any point in debating any issues at all. As a practical, reasonable matter I think it’s safe to say that dumbness can in fact exist. People who support Trump, for instance, may very well may have “real reasons” for doing so, but that doesn’t mean they’re not dumb.
