The Threshing Floor
Dr. D at the Daily Demarche has initiated a challenge to bloggers from the left and right to pair up and debate ideas. The first pairing has begun. Get over to Dr. D's place and get up to speed, then check out the combatants: Marc Schulman at the American Future and Eric Martin at Total Information Awareness. Up for debate now:|
I haven't had time to really read these postings closely, but a quick scan indicates that good arguments are presented by both, and for the most part the comments are constructive. The American conversation at present is sadly lacking in good reasoned debate... no, that's not accurate... good reasoned debate is overwhelmed by the amount of trash being written. Separating the grain from the chaff is time consuming, and many people don't care to or want to take the time necessary to extract the goodness. Dr. D has done the threshing, and presented us with the grain. Eat hearty!
