This article tells you that the marketplace of ideas is an amazing thing.
A disagreeable position or hypothesis will create/push/instigate even greater research that discover great results. I find this to be true in my personal life. Debates with others often leads to research on my part.
If this is something that you cannot use, maybe you should try debating those you think are dumb (read:lefties). There are troll lefties and intellectual lefties (believe it or not). Throw your ideas out there, and you might be surprised that you are also one of the dumb ones sometimes.
(If you think you are so smart, most of the time it is a sign that you are NOT that smart at all)
