The problem with condemning someone as a liar, manipulator, or trouble maker of some kind is that now you presume any good ideas about them must be fake, and anything bad must be real, and that can never be true of anyone. Binaries are a form of blindness that gets mistaken for seeing so clearly that you can’t be fooled.
