The “experts” think their always right. The readers either think their experts or will defend the experts almost to death against those who disagree. And the dissenters too often move quickly into “defense mode,” which again turns into “I’m right, you’re wrong, end of story.” You can find the tenor of this thread all over the place. It’s a pretty human condition.
At the end of the day, though, the best advice always comes from a place of humility and openness. Because no one walks the exact same path in this world. Humility and openness are the two qualities I think are most missing in these kinds of discussions. Which makes for more drama and excitement, but makes it more difficult for helpful truths to shine through.
