Every café in town might claim to have the best coffee. While most of them are lying, that doesn't mean that some don't in fact have better coffee than others. It's up to you to judge each on its own merits, read reviews, or get a recommendation from someone you think has good taste in coffee.

Support for clojure's worldview is easy to find on the web. It comes both from the clojure community itself (see Rich Hickey's talks) and from the wider communities that clojure draws its ideas from (other functional languages, lisp, etc.) Decide for yourself if you find the arguments compelling. In my experience, the clojure community is not interested in promoting clojure for reasons of tribalism or vanity, but because they can indeed use it to produce better work faster.
