You are too good for this board. It is funny watching you toss all these pearls before swine, but honestly at this point people like us just need to build.
The people you're trying to convince are deranged, and I mean that in the strictest possible sense. They have allowed a special kind of insecurity and hatred to completely subvert what little critical thinking facility they originally had.
People like us, the builders, have always had a thankless job. We have always been despised or ignored until the lens of history is turned upon us 20, 30 or 40 years after the fact. It is our burden to lift up the intellectual riff-raff even if they really don't deserve it.
