Does WM require that everything that is common sense must be explicitly stated before it can be accepted as being common sense?
That is a most uncommon view of what common sense is.
Most people regard "common sense" as consisting of those things that normally do NOT have to be explicitly stated to be accepted.
But then, anything at all like common sense is remarkably uncommon in WM's wild weird world of WMytheology. --
