Few if any people know how to argue these days.
It is rare to find someone who understands points of stasis or burden of rejoinder or why I think they are an idiot when they attack the person instead of the argument. People (using that term lightly) who would be laughed out of a formal debate blogging and being taken seriously by anyone. I get why Mr. Trump speaks in soundbites, and he does it better than anyone, but still, it is sad.
It's more a wonder when any
victim graduate attendee of this system can think an independent thought, let alone rationally defend it.
