A productive dialogue is hard to find these days. So, I want to look at a couple of fallacies that happen a lot to show how to move past them. These 3 fallacies are dragging down our discourse, and this is how to lighten that load.
Bill Gates' quote on success rings true as people who find success often cannot imagine a world in which they lose.
In a land where every person is supposed to be equal, the fact that one man stands in front of the country each year to be lauded for the accomplishments of each individual is stupid and imperialistic. It gives the office of the Presidency the appearance of Monarchy and diminishes the accomplishments of the individual Americans who made the real difference. Since it seems America will never return to a letter from the President to Congress about the State of the Union, it seems necessary to evaluate the speech as it is.
