the Alpha John's "No need for research" axiom

In a crowd of emotionally invested people one need not know the subject matter -- simply infer from your surroundings.

Can you prove that your axiom does not lead to a contradiction directly with or derived from all other axioms within the set (i.e. consistency) and that it cannot be derived from other axioms (independence)?

Why don't you prove it for me Barry, thus showing that (1) the questions
make the axiom valid, and (2) your emotional investment in the subject
matter makes the statement true?

This is left as an exercise to the reader.
