“All truth passes through three stages: First it is ridiculed, Second it is violently opposed, Third it is accepted as being self-evident.”

Arthur SCHOPENHAUER, German philosopher, (1788-1860)

Ironically, I know that quote from my exposure to conspiracy theorists, who tend to be distinctive in their righteous opposition to some possible conspiracy. I personally know many who fiercely protest various political developments, financial trends, and even patterns of behavior in certain other individual people they know. I have done all of that as well.

I bless you in any violent (intellectual) opposition to any truth, willing that you may know what is self-evident simply as… what is self-evident. What have you personally opposed lately? Further, what have you personally practiced, promoted, and developed?
