Susan in TN Posted July 17, 2008 Share Posted July 17, 2008 ... putting "social pressure" on national and local political candidates to complete (and pass with a 'B' average) a basic Jr. High course in Logic? Maybe we could attend political rallies and local city counsel meetings with signs to hold up at appropriate times; statements like "Red Herring!", "Straw Man!", "Appeal to the Masses!", or "A cannot equal A and -A simultaneously!" I don't mean to demean their intelligence - some candidates have been highly educated, but many seem to have lost all sense of logic. Might make the nation as a whole pay more attention, too. What do you think? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
