I agree. People feeling "entitled" to what they believe, is a bulwark against reason.
"I'm entitled to believe whatever bullshit I believe, so I can ignore whatever facts I like."

People should be taught, early, the importance of believing only that which can be demonstrated to be true through facts/evidence. Indeed, there is an obligation to only believe such things, if one wants to be considered a rational and reasonable human being.

I watched this thing last night: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=coF5Ia8be4g&t=5288s
It was fucking unbearable. Watching reason get raped by Knechtle left me without hope. When I lose hope I want to punch people. Does that make me a bad person?

Yeah. I'm a little sick of this entitled to belief bullshit. Fox news has no problem with tossing it out. I watched that shitstorm a little last night as well. I think I was trying to test my spirit somehow or maybe I was trying to inch closer to putting that gun in my mouth?

Postmodernism is breathing strong again as well.
