Sturgeon and his political corrolaries

Sturgeon's law: 90% of everything is crap.
Political sturgeon's law: 90% of all the arguments offered in the support of any given ideology or movement are crap.
The fish-shooting corollary: 99% of all the arguments made against any ideology or movement attack the crappy 90% of arguments, never bothering to engage with the quality ones.
The ignorance corollary: You have never even heard the good reasons for supporting most of the ideologies or movements you've rejected as obviously wrong.
