    A Great Article by Janie B. Cheaney



    "Loud shouts and lack of knowledge disfigure today’s attempts at discourse."

    I’d like to direct folks to Janie B. Cheaney’s recent article in World Magazine. It is fitting for our day: a time when reasoned discourse is well-nigh impossible. Evoking Plato’s Republic, she likens today’s left wing (and I’m sure she’d include some from the right) as people in the cave with no fire behind them. Everyone’s in the dark screaming over each others’ voices.

    Her quotes range from Socrates to Garrison Keillor to Solomon in a very enlightening way.

    Thanks for the link.

    So how do we get to real dialog?

    Joe,

    I'm not sure how dialog is possible if truth is not a category in people's thinking.

    The only thing we can do is bully each other to one perspective or another, I guess. Too bad, huh?

    Maybe the climate will change (revert) to what it is supposted to be...

    It is sad people care more about their rights than knowing the truth. They believe anything the media tells them. Good article!
