This Explains A Lot

From Terry Teachout summarizing "Twitter; in four sentences" but it actually explains a lot about much of our discourse today:

argument5• How dare you talk about A when B is infinitely more important?

• If I disagree with you, you’re almost certainly arguing in bad faith and probably evil as well.

• You are personally responsible, in toto and in perpetuity, for everything that your friends, colleagues, and/or ancestors have ever said, done, or thought.

• Sentences #2 and #3 do not apply to me.
