this essayist argues the case that debate is useless, because everyone has already made up their minds..and in the main, just exchange talking points..
if you ducked around the rightwing blogs here you would find some don’t even want/allow that..they only really want an echo chamber/mutual admiration society..
if any commenter dares to make a reasoned critique of the ideas they are peddling, they tend to react with vitriolic fury and threats to ban said questioner…
it puzzles me why they can’t/won’t defend their ideas in a rational manner….
and it certainly supports the case made by this writer….
