AT THE RISK OF perpetuating a cliche, this ought to leave a mark, but probably won’t even make an impression where it’s needed. More’s the pity.
Here’s a good rule of thumb: If you can’t manage to muster even one honest, moral, consistent, logical or rational statement when defending your opinion, perhaps it’s time to consider changing it entirely.
Or, as Ayn Rand put it, “Contradictions do not exist. Whenever you think you are facing a contradiction, check your premises. You will find that one of them is wrong.”
