Passionate Discourse

Friday, January 31st, 2003 · 1 Comment

My post yesterday about Mandela’s comments on Bush raised quite the controversial dialogue. While I’m offline for at least a couple days during the move, please have a read, browse the comments, or join the discourse.

I must say I’m really psyched that my blog has spurred such dialogue, as I believe it’s incredibly important. It reminds me of one of my favorite quotes, from one John Milton, on whom I wrote my senior thesis in college:

    Where there is much desire to learn, there of necessity will be much
    arguing, much writing, many opinions; for opinion in good men is but
    knowledge in the making.
    -John Milton, Areopagitica

Have a great weekend!

    As long as such discourse remains friendly and involves people with open minds, all can learn much from them. (e.g. Never use phrases such as “stupid white cronies” if trying to persuade people. :-) )

    Sometimes monologues/dialogues are not in place to actually persuade; some are there just to make people think about the topic. Good job, Gabe!
