I actually don't have a problem with this. It is, to some degree, Owenism, or even how conservatives in Oregon are--which I don't necessarily have a problem with. They want to be left alone.
I argue that their emotions, how the feel, all that stuff comes from their interaction with the material. At some level this is unprovable (though I maintain the evidence is strong enough).
Nonetheless, fair play. I do tend to notice that a lot of people, especially on the right, presume that their positions are not as you describe, but objectively correct. When it is pointed out that this is not the case and they're making an emotional argument instead of a logical one, they tend to get irrational about it.
But what's a goon to say to someone that says, "Sure, maybe you're right, but I just want to be around people that feel like I feel whether it's objectively true or not?"
