The hubris and overconfidence of commenters on my TikTok account

It can be fascinating and frustrating to read many of the comments on my TikTok account when I publish a video.

So many commenters appear to be so sure and so confident about the wildest misconceptions that you would fear for them.

Perhaps they are supremely confident online in their comments on legal issues or cases and in real life, if faced with a difficult decision, they obtain professional advice and do not rely on their own total misunderstanding of a legal principle.

I certainly hope so.

There is nothing more dangerous than an individual who is supremely confident and cannot countenance that her opinion might be completely, or partially, wrong.

Especially when they are labouring under the most serious misunderstandings and misconceptions.
