1) your thinking on what everyone is thinking or everyone knows is probably wrong. If you want to assert some fact about public opinion, you should bring receipts
2) people claiming to speak on behalf of other people are probably wrong. The exceptions to this include such things as “elected officials” and “people chosen to speak on behalf of members of their organization”
People not excepted from this rule include people claiming to speak on behalf of broad categories of people such as “taxpayers” or “millennials” or “tenants” or “the neighbourhood” who have not actually been elected by the general membership of those categories
