      “We call upon the people People have this power The numbers don't decide Your system is a lie The river running dry The wings of a butterfly And you may pour us away like soup Like we're pretty broken flowers We'll take back what is ours Take back what is ours

      One day at a time“

      This is a good example of people wanting to argue with the strawman of what they (and others) say an idea says, rather than what the idea actually says. Which - as the author points out - doesn't mean the idea isn't wrong or shouldn't be criticized and debated. You should bring your best arguments against their best arguments, that is how ideas improve and minds change.
