Teaching People to Read

Notice, words like "all", "none", "never" etc. usually lead to logical fallacies. The problem with so many liberals, is that they have not learned how to read.

I use words like "some", "many", "few"--meaning such.

One of the tragedies of American and British education is that the schools stopped requiring logic, debate, argumentation, Aristotelian modes of writing, and objective criteria for literature or writing.

I do not think we shall ever see a rational public again in the United States.

American and European History, as courses, began to be dropped from requirements in high school as earlier as 1980. It shows.

I would tell some of my commentators, learn to read, please, without knee-jerk reactions and without agendas.
