Ever has it been so.

The righteously wrong, muster the unthinkingly unknowing, 'gainst the reasonable man on the basis of twitterly extracts and sensational sound-bites.

...Ism they cry, and the faithful come flocking to the defense of the heresy that wasn't. Not pausing to read in full; much less consider in depth.

As a mentor long ago told me, but I have only latterly come to understand, it is only once you have ceased fearing what other may think of you, that you attain the freedom to be who you truly are, and see the world as it really is.

And so it is that reasonable men become burdened with the stigma born of imagined wrongs of unreasoned zealots.

As with the Rivers of Blood, still so widely misunderstood, it may be many years before the valid argument overrides the perception of unreasonable terms and stands not without prescience.
