KEY CONCEPT: "Everything we know has its origins in questions. Questions, we might say, are the principal intellectual instruments available to human beings." ― Neil Postman (1931-2003)

Going back to your list of things to think about and possibly discuss, I came across an excellent meme that handles a couple components. Briefly, it stated that a fact is information minus emotion. An opinion is information plus experience. Ignorance is an opinion lacking information. And, finally, stupidity is opinion that ignores fact.

She wasn't indeed. I got a kick out of another quote of hers that surprised me to learn came from her, viz: "-I don’t like to badmouth people. But I’m the head of a monarchy that began in the ninth century, and I’m apparently more modern than Chris Christie. Look, I know he has to appeal to the crazy right-wingers in his party, but the fact is, he’s not as forward-thinking as an eighty-seven-year-old lady who wears a crown on her head. It’s pathetic."
