No, you're not entitled to your opinion

No, you're not entitled to your opinion | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Every year, I try to do at least two things with my students at least once.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

This argues a good point.

 

Excerpt:

So what does it mean to be “entitled” to an opinion?

 

If “Everyone’s entitled to their opinion” just means no-one has the right to stop people thinking and saying whatever they want, then the statement is true, but fairly trivial. No one can stop you saying that vaccines cause autism, no matter how many times that claim has been disproven.

 

But if ‘entitled to an opinion’ means ‘entitled to have your views treated as serious candidates for the truth’ then it’s pretty clearly false. And this too is a distinction that tends to get blurred.
