All “common-sense” means today is “something I wish everyone agreed with me about” and/or “something I want to cast those who don’t agree with me in a negative light over.” It should not be mistaken for a coherent nor thoughtful argument.

Even if it weren’t a hollowed-out term, it’s not inherently positive. After all, there’s a reason the word “counterintuitive” exists.
