Sometimes. I typically don’t bother engaging if I sense the writer is being willfully obscurantist.

Taking it further seems rather too close to anti-intellectualism. This line of thinking has been used by reactionaries as a tactic to repress radicals and anarchists since time immemorial.

People here are mostly anti-intellectual if you haven’t noticed. Ziq and the rest of these people would just like to burn everything and exit civilization. And they idealize the 100.000 years before civilization.

What's anti-intellectual about burning everything? When a deadly force is suffocating you and everyone around you, the intellectual course of action would be to make sure you can breathe again, no?
