People are always tripping me up. They will ask me what my idea is about x. I’ll tell them something off the cuff. And then it’ll turn out that they actually have thought much more deeply and cogently on the topic than I have. And I end up looking like a fool. Or they’ll put forward a seemingly reasonable suggestion and when I jump on board will gradually reveal why its consequences are ridiculous.
I call out Socrates and Jonathan Swift for this kind of rude and confusing argumentative behavior.
Everyone should be required to register their precise level of naivete with some sort of Bureau of Naive Registration, so before you argue with someone you can find out how naive they are for real.
