[DISCORD] Philosophical Struggle

You can’t get through to the ones who are that far gone — the ones who don’t simply deny facts, but actually fail to see what’s right under their noses.

The ones we need to get through to are the ones on the fringes.  The ones who aren’t so fully gone that ideology is able to supersede reason.

And there are a lot of people who have remained willfully ignorant, simply because they despise the churlishness that often accompanies political arguments.  We need to reach them too, because they need to realize that what’s ultimately going on here isn’t a political struggle but an philosophical one.

Are we going to let racism and brutality dictate our future?  Are we going to discard science and medicine because we’re afraid of hurting people’s feelings?  Is truth whatever each of us chooses it to be, or do we live in an objective reality?

Politics comes second to all that.
