failure to think

Dear Nearly Everyone In the World,

Just because someone did or does something awesome does not mean that s/he is incapable of ALSO doing or having done something awful.

Please stop trying to explain how Julian Assange couldn't possibly have done that bad thing because he's just being persecuted for something else. When you argue that, you're not only wrong, but you're displaying an impressive failure to think.

Thank you,
