In Ignorantia, Veritas

That is, in ignorance, truth.

A couple quotes. The first is a teaser because it doesn’t really include the context and sorta doesn’t make sense but is actually pertty damn perceptive:

[snip] to establish yourself as on a higher moral plane than other people, You have to offer a strident, emotionally-hot opinion without knowing anything.

And this one reaffirms the above:

In the old days, enlightened men and women would show their enlightenment by reserving judgment until the facts had been collected and analyzed.

In the New Enlightenment — really the New Dark Ages — we show our enlightenment by doing the exact opposite, shrieking our strident but completely uninformed opinions before the situation gets all tainted with “facts” and “evidence” and “reason.”
