A brief note on opinion: If you look at a cat and say, “In my opinion that’s an iPhone” that’s not an opinion that’s just you being wrong.
This is a great point. It seems like something this commonsensical doesn’t need to be said, but unfortunately it does.
So now an objective fact is treated nationally as a subjective question because a few stubborn, ignorant assholes formed a consensus.
I’d add to the list of “stubborn, ignorant assholes” the unscrupulous people who stand to retain/gain their power/fortune based on undermining objective facts.
Also, it feels weird linking to a Twitter thread, but I guess that’s life now.
