five short poems about “what if people call themselves toasters now”

In my experience the only thing that has ever helped me get more sophisticated about anything is taking people I disagree with seriously (steelmanning if necessary, because lots of people who disagree with me are idiots) and adjusting my beliefs in order to survive their challenges.

Oh Scott you adorable maybe-caliph.

Having been disagreed with in the past, I recognize that The Other Party often look like idiots and argue like they’ve never heard the phrase “supporting evidence” but that quote will look hilarious in hindsight every time you turn out to be wrong.
