There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world.

I don't suppose it would do any good to point out to them that their "hands up, don't shoot" protest and solidarity is ALL based on a lie and that this whole riot/protest situation is just a bunch of stupid people manipulated into believing that same lie.
2-no...they aren't entitled to an 'opinion' about facts. They ARE absolutely entitled to be wrong. They are entitled to ignore facts and make stupid decisions and label them a belief. You are entitled to defend their stupid decisions. But what you are doing is advocating that someone having an 'opinion' that 2+2=5 is their right. And see...that's not an opinion, that's a blatant, willful self deception. That's knowing better and still clinging to their stupidity. But again...you have the right to defend them.
