Just because the other guy is wrong doesn’t mean that you are right.
Being wrong is not a unique trait. Don’t worry about proving others wrong, worry about trying to prove yourself wrong. That’s real intellectualism. Assume that you’re the idiot – and try to to prove it! That’s the scientific method.
Most people today don’t know the difference between virtue and virtue signaling; between rational and rationalization; between fact and narrative; between improbable and impossible; between natural and nature; between God and Science; between religion and philosophy; between the physical and the metaphysical; between reality and perception; between doing good and wanting to do good; between critique and criticism; between skepticism and nihilism; between thought and thoughtfulness; between leading and being in charge; between progress and change; between movement and motion, between being right and firmly believing that you’re right; between being moral and acting moral.
