Why do we label people with such pejoratives and is it really warranted or conducive to interaction, understanding and resolution?
It's a long-standing and difficult area I know, but we're all human, and we're not perfect. I get extraordinarily frustrated by denialist viewpoints, which get repeated ad nauseam even when they're patent nonsense that has been discredited a hundred times. I'm not a paid professional or a psychiatrist, what do you think I'm going to do?
Sure there have been one or two genuine enquiring minds that were actually looking for answers, and I try to be very patient and humble in those rare cases. (Deleted inflammatory pejoratives.)
