162. How To Engage In Discussions – Conversation The WGN Podcast

I had the chance to talk to the guys at the Winner Gets Nothing Podcast about a range of topics. In this episode, we discussed, politics, religion, and much more. One of the main things we talked about is how to engage in discussions. I think this is a huge part of what’s hurting our society today.

We dove into a range of different topics. But, I think the whole time we were flowing on a lot of different topics. Hopefully, this episode serves as a guide for those of you who want to have good, productive conversations.

“The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis.”

Dante Alighieri

The guys at the WGN Podcast are not sitting idly by, but are engaging in the conversation. And, that’s one of the reasons I wanted to talk to them. If you’re interested in politics, religion, libertarianism, conspiracies and more, you’ll like this podcast for sure.

How To Engage in Discussions

First, keep a level head. Don’t get angry or upset if people disagree. In the moment you can simply agree to disagree and think about things and think about it later.

Secondly, you should find common ground and seek to understand the other person. Instead of looking to win the argument or undermine the other person’s argument, look for ways to be productive. Finding common ground and building on that can be great. And, learning a new perspective can be really helpful as well.

Lastly, I recommend you talk about things you and the other person are knowledgeable on and passionate about. If you can do that, you have a way to move forward on the conversation and can get into the flow of it. I think we had that flow going, which is why I wanted to share this conversation with you.

199. Time to Fight | Lord of the Rings The Two Towers Book Review Conversation of Our Generation

There comes a time when you have to fight, even if it seems hopeless. I think we're at that point in our culture. And no, I'm not calling for actual violence. I'm calling for us to simply rise up and speak the truth, even when it's hard. You may not want to be the one to take part in the battle. But when it's time to fight, you don't always have a choice. I think this book demonstrates how we ought to act when we're up against the wall and see no way out. "Arise now, arise, Riders of Theoden! Dire deeds awake, dark is it eastward. Let horse be bridled, horn be sounded! Forth Eorlingas!" – J.R.R. Tolkien Sign up for the email list here. How to Know it's Time to Fight It can be hard to know when you should stand your ground and fight. Sometimes it's clear, and sometimes it's murky. However, I think right now we can clearly see that our culture is under attack from many directions. Some of the most basic truths are being called into question. We don't trust our institutions, and deservedly so. Furthermore, the education of our children is being undermined and used to indoctrinate them. So, if you ask me, it's time to push back. It's time to fight. Fighting for a Lost Cause But, how do we go about that? Has the left not completely taken over the culture? While they may have taken over most of the culture, I don't think fighting back is a lost cause. It may be a long shot, but they were able to systematically and radically subvert the culture over the past century. I think we can play their game of inches as well and flip the culture. — Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/conofourgen/support
