Do we need to vilify the messenger?
It appears that some people are starting to get tired of correcting the information over and over again. Everyone is tired of defending the same arguments over and over again.

There is always some new punk who comes into town and says "Draw Mister!" And, we begrudgingly thumb through our old notes and paste them into new blogs.

The problem is the bridge these punks cross over. Where is it? Does it matter? We can do two things. We can try to burn the bridge, or we can teach. We can try to use reason. If we cannot reason with people, it's really not that they are unreasonable, they are intimidated.

We should not criticize them but trigger their brains into thinking critically without feeling like outcasts.

Well it's true that without a learning curve, no one gets anywhere! This comes down to inviting people to take control of their own learning process. Such a thing is not on the menue in the force feed media of TV. It's really corrollatable; the more hours a person spends in front of the boob tube- the harder it is for them to take critical thinking into their own process.
