Well, assuming this is just for Raddle, people here will understand that it's a post-left meme. I assumed that since you've marked it as from Raddle you intend it at least potentially to go beyond this space, where that context wouldn't exist.

The particular kind of thing I had in mind are the thoughtless objections that people hold when they've just been fed an answer to a question and unquestioningly accepted it.

"But if there was communism everybody would be exactly the same and everything would be grey and boring"

"but if there's no profit motive why would people do anything"

"If you don't vote, you can't complain!"

The kind of thing where if you took just a little time to actually engage with the thing you're critiquing you would have far more substantial things to say and wouldn't just be a mouthpiece for the hegemonic position of the space.

Pretty much any of the standard things people say about anti-civ thought are familiar around here.
