Who loves ya, baby?
How do you do that though? How do you validate the opinion that Trump didn't say something there's direct evidence of him saying? Strikes me as getting into the territory Craner described at the start of the Nick Land thread re: the danger of being locked in a world of ideas if material conditions aren't necessary to validate an opinion like that.@version To your point about enabling elitist opinions by treating them as valid:
To be sure, by valid I don't mean exempt from criticism, I just mean exempt from being dismissed entirely. They had to have arrived at their opinion somehow, however diligently, under whatever circumstances, informed by whatever lopsided influences - but all opinions stem from the same general software, and their developments are executed in the same world, a world that is seemingly becoming increasingly homogenous.
