A lawyer hoped history books would help her Capitol riot clients grow. She was called a traitor — and worse.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/dc-md-va/2021/07/31/capitol-riot-lawyer-books-defense/

Defense attorney Heather Shaner said her first client from Jan. 6 wanted to invoke “the Constitution from 1776.″ When she tried to explain that the document was ratified years later, the man told her he had done his research and she was incorrect.


She is a bit naïve about her clients. But naivete is noble.

5. "The internet is not a valid means of knowledge" needs become a mantra of the rational

The internet is a tool for communication, for sharing ideas/knowledge.
The internet is not a valid means of knowledge and people need to learn that, "I read it on the internet" is equal to "there is a likely false rumor being spread by the those who don't know."
