Reckoning out loud

Oh to be a philosopher before Kant.
You could just say whatever you reckon
And be lauded for it.
You didn’t even have to think too hard.
Just say stuff in an authoritative tone
And BAM
You’re a philosopher.
This tradition persists in American Conservative thought.
From Locke to Rand to Peterson
Reckoning out loud
Is the same thing as intellectual rigor.
