The Rules of Intelligent Discussions
By: Barry Belmont

After having argued a great deal of hot air out of myself in our Campus Discussions, I’ve come to discover that there are certain modes of debate which simply are not conducive to intelligent discussion. This includes things like talking with someone who is unwilling to be convinced or unconvinced of a position and simply not understanding what it means for an argument to fail or succeed. But don’t worry, I found a flow chart on the internet to help us out!

    Two copies of this diagram are currently sitting in my wallet, and I’m seriously considering tattooing it on my arm.

    Not an unreasonable assumption I would posit.
