Maybe Harman was right all along, maybe internet does breed trollishness? Look at this “discussion” – having read all of the comments (all of them), I have to say that I’m very depressed and pessimistic about life as a whole. Maybe people should stop trying to pretend that we live by some rational creed, that we are actually guided by reasons and that we can be persuaded?
I used to be entertained by these sorts of exchanges – seeing people talk past each other made me laugh – but now I’m just sad. But at this very moment someone is surely wrong about something on the internet, so I must go and bother them immediately!
