If you Google the word “apologetics” you will see the definition which is suitable for this post: “reasoned arguments or writings in justification of something, typically a theory or religious doctrine.” I find my studies in apologetics to be very useful in political discussions.
Yesterday I posted a short essay on reparations As expected almost nobody read it to the end. I knew that would happen before I posted it. Some outrage ensued. I was asked to clarify things at the top of the post. However, that would completely defeat the intent and usefulness of the post.
Here is how you can use it. Our goal is to win the middle. We have the right and the left will never come our way. You can show this short essay to an independent who may be moving left due to arguments by BLM and others.
You likely noticed the posting does not let people in on the conclusion until the very end. That conclusion is registered Democrats are the only Americans that should be responsible for reparations. It is a form of psychological jiu-jitsu (Aiki), manipulating the opponent’s force against themselves rather than confronting it with one’s own force.
Now you know.
I will try to keep future posts shorter.
