A good idea that is traced back to its source will be found to have been conjured by someone with reprehensible or offensive views about something else.
Corollary A: This utterly discredits the idea.
Corollary B: There are no good ideas with a personal history.
Lemma: If a good idea should tragically happen to you, bury it someplace safe, destroy all records of your connection to the idea, then take a cash-only vacation as a consolation prize before euthanizing yourself. Try not to get so wasted that you spill the beans to some reprehensible or offensive stranger that might later take the credit, thus destroying all that's good in the world.
