In life you’ll be faced with an endless series of learning experiences that over time reveal patterns that you’ll learn to instantly recognize and will serve you well in understanding those around you.

  • Secondly the tone is that you are irresponsible for not paying attention, even thought you may have very well paid attention and then decided for yourself you might not agree with the groupthink.
  • Lastly, their like-minded friends will jump in on social media and try to gang up on you in an attempt to mock your clear ignorance. They’ll laugh among themselves at your expense and self-congratulate themselves for their clear superior state of wokeness.

  • The second point about Science with the Lefitists of the world is that they only accept their Science. Equally good (or even better) Science that flies in the face of the Leftist narrative, or any particular point they might be trying to make is not allowable Science and cannot be accepted into the argument at hand.
