If an idea is truly bad, the last thing we can afford to do is ignore it, run away from it, or casually dismiss it.
If we contend that an idea is unreasonable, we should be prepared to offer reasons for that contention.
The stubborn refusal to intelligently address so-called crazy ideas is precisely what allows those ideas to gain credibility.
In the absence of scrutiny, even the absurd can appear reasonable.
The uglier an idea is, the more necessary it is for us to drag it into the light.
