I wrote that you reason as a Millennial because I sensed that you might not be one of them. But they did not show up from nowhere. Many of their parents thought them their ideological leaning, which gradually became popular, because it is better than facing the real world.

Typically for Millennials, you put feelings above reason. You cannot comprehend that someone might form his or her opinions basing on a calm and meticulous study of facts and their logical connections. What you call being judgmental, I call sticking to facts and logic. Do I always like my conclusions? No. But the worst truth is better than the best delusion.

We have difficulties in communicating, because you write about my faults, not the shortcomings of my reasoning. I am not interested in your opinions about me; you are not interested in my critique of your arguments. Emotionally, you feel that you are on the right side, and I can be with you on this one. But when we talk how these emotions can translate into political actions, in my book, only reason should be used.

“When the leader of the country uses vulgar language” some people follow, as you write. I do not. FYI, I grew up at times and a place when leaders of the country did much worse things that swearing in public. It was a hard lesson how to stay sane and keep the moral spine straight.

Many tell us what we should think. I write to encourage my readers to think for themselves. I write to ask you to inquire. Question me. Have fun.
