This is pretty much the kind of conversation that I want, too. I do feel that I've moved on from sophomoric philosophy debates, but perhaps I'm deluding myself and I've actually just turned into a boring middle-aged suburbanite. I like intelligent disagreement, I don't like tribalism and point-scoring. I try to write my journal posts to the best of my ability, but without being such a perfectionist that I'm scared to write anything at all. And, well, I've just about made peace with the fact that the best of my ability isn't very good.

A lot of your posts give me the sense that the reason you're more pessimistic than I am is because you're vastly more intelligent. Which means it's hard to imagine a response more useless than saying that I want constructive intelligent conversation too, but I do.
