"If they attack you personally, it means they have not a single political argument left." -Margaret Thatcher
In a video put out by the guys at Reason, they aptly provide a simple video piece that demonstrates exactly what "debate" means to a Socialist.
It doesn't mean engaging in facts or logic or economics with real numbers. It means to attack your opponent rather than attempt to dismantle his ideas.
This is constantly going on in politics, whether it is from the right or the left, both sides have problems in many cases defending certain positions when someone other than their particular controlled opposition begins to question them about their logic or their ideas.
I'll admit, this happens a lot more on the openly Socialist "Left" than it does on the "Right," but it does happen on both sides.
The Reason video, titled "How to debate right wingers," is a satirical video that will make you laugh, but you will see clearly the point it's making, and a good point it is.
Furthermore, if you are already in a public indoctrination center, we refer to as public schools, you will immediately understand the re-education process if you speak out of the normal political echo chamber of the teacher.
You will also not the humiliation of those who actually want to think for themselves and engage in conversation to see whose ideas are right, wrong or even the best and wisest to follow.
This is one that should be shared with all your friends regardless of political affiliation because no one wants to be thought of as a useful idiot, do they?
Perhaps this might be eye-opening to people across the political spectrum, not just those the video specifically targets.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter. You can also get Freedom Outpost delivered to your Amazon Kindle device here.
