Oh, I share his comment with all my heart! People have not been taught to think, but rather, what to think. Also, we’re incredibly emotional, we have these knee jerk reactions to everything we hear and our offense becomes more important then our reason or whether or not what we are hearing is the truth. Drives me crazy.
However, there is a valid point to public debate. We might lose thousands of battles, but many people will eventually listen. The truth has a way of standing up and defending itself.
Remember, more than half of the voters in this country are women. Add to that, all of the atheists, socialists and academics, and unfortunately, that explains a lot.
