What Am I ... Chopped Liver?

Toward a further discrimination between things ...

In some sense many (most? ... all?) facts are just opinions. Ones we all agree upon. No necessity to it. Just a consensus. Just not to take what the majority of people hold to be true as a fact. May be. But, not because the majority agrees. 

Like when Larry Wilmore on his last episode of The Nightly Show answered the question about why the image of the world map featured as a backdrop on the show was upside down. He explained that the world map that we usually see is an opinion. And, his treatment, just to give notice that there happen to be other opinions.

So next time you put something or someone down using that "It's just YOUR opinion" gambit take a little time to back up and see the opinion that you are sitting with for you to justify saying that.
