T-Rex: One day, instead of instantly churning out the hot takes, everyone did the opposite! They posted the coldest take possible, which was as follows...
T-Rex: "I don't know enough about the subject to give an informed response."
T-Rex: Social media, fueled by the otherwise intrinsic good that comes from debating with anonymous strangers with no shared presumption of good faith, collapsed! Even when someone somewhere on the planet posted something CLEARLY stupid, people responded only with a profession of the limitations of their own knowledge!
Utahraptor: What about experts? T-Rex: What about them?
T-Rex: They more than anyone knew the limitations of their knowledge, knew that the more you understood a subject the more you realized all the areas that you DIDN'T command. All that remained was a respectful search for knowledge, spurred by innate desire to understand not just each other... but ourselves too.
Off panel: All this sounds SUSPICIOUSLY utopic. T-Rex: Yeah there's probably a downside I'm not seeing, but I don't know enough about the subject to give an informed response
What are the haps my friends
