In order to speak with authority we must first listen to our adversary with careful consideration!
How did this happen?
It used to be, everyone was entitled to their own opinion, but not their own facts. But that’s not the case anymore. Facts matter not at all. Perception is everything
Where are they?
Great leaders are almost always great simplifiers, who can cut through argument, debate and doubt, to offer a solution everybody can understand.
The Truth Hurts
Insults are the arguments employed by those who are in the wrong.
The Political System as it should be
The aim of argument, or of discussion, should not be victory, but progress.
Is this The American Public or just Facebook?
The moment we want to believe something, we suddenly see all the arguments for it, and become blind to the arguments against it.
George Bernard Shaw
When are politicians going to start doing something about his problem instead of working to increase it?
Part of the reason that our politics seems so tough right now and facts and science and argument do not seem to be winning the day all the time is because we’re hardwired not to always think clearly when we’re scared. And the country’s scared.
