Last week you wrote an opinion based on facts that I don’t believe because it made me feel bad and didn’t fit within my paradigm. I have a number of fallacious, subjective arguments as to why I’m correct, and I want everyone to abide by my moral and ethical code, except when I don’t. I’m writing this letter to inform you that I have an opinion, just like everyone, but mine matters because it’s mine. Also, I felt really good while writing this letter because it gave me the sense that I matter more than I do. But I do matter because I believe that I do. It’s ludicrous to base your actions on facts, evidence, and sound reasoning when emotions can tell you all you need to believe in the time it takes to inhale and exhale the same breath. I expect you and everyone else to act like my opinion matters by talking about it.
