How to Argue Like a Fascist

By Rick Pearcey • April 7, 2009, 09:37 AM

As demonstrated by this unfortunate comment on American Fascism: Obama and Mussolini (a Pro-Existence post which was commented upon yesterday in a blog at the Village Voice):

Whew . . . are you as ignorant as you sound? Jeebus . . . I want to party with you cowboy! I bet the chicks dig that ignorant, righteous schtick. What color is the sky in your world? No, seriously . . . because you obviously aren't in the real world. You're in a world full of hate, ignorance, intolerance, fear, and greed. I pity you.

If one lacks reason and evidence to support your case, you pound the table, devolve into power, attack the person, and escape from reason.

The writer of the above blocked-quote comment is created in the image of God and therefore better than the inhumane approach that is expressed in the content of what he or she writes.

The Judeo-Christian worldview, in contrast to fascism and this writer's comment, respects reason and the individual, as seen here in "Christmas Spirit in Space and Time."

A recent helpful book that provides tools for reasonable and respectful dialogue is Tactics, by Greg Koukl.
