Natives Rising: The Age of Emotional Appeal Over Rational Argument

Natives Rising makes great posts on Facebook that you are encouraged to follow!


Thought for the Day~ We live in an age where everyone seems more interested and easily persuaded by the emotional appeal over the rational argument. We think the emotional appeal is a rational argument, usually because it agrees with us on some deep level, but in reality it is just arguing. If we get upset when someone asks a question seeking support for something we believe is true this is our first clue we are not thinking about our position but "feeling" about it. This is dangerous. Every crack pot in history has used the emotional appeal and every crackpot in the future will do the same. Just because we are smart does not mean we don't have prejudices.

Please think.
