Interesting that the point he made was that It's pivoted to empathy because rather than disagree you can attack the worth of the person directly if they hold a difference of opinion.
... So they attacked his worth as an intellectual for it without having to address the point.
Believing in absolutes is what people who believe humanity starts at a single point in time are doing.
This is actually an issue I have, thankfully Gethelred has helped me step back from the breach assuming motivations of people and effectively surrender the floor to someone to explain their position so I better understand them.Under the mistaken belief he was on the left. Once Shapiro found out who he was he apologised.
The guy is just a white-anter. Stroking controversy is his way of making money off people's divisions. Instead of a dialogue to see different views, it's all about him trying to prove his own. Boorring!
Stick guns..back to the …freefallOn one hand, hooooo boy that's an ambush! I'm surprised that Shapiro allowed himself to get cornered so severely, over and over again. Has he allowed himself to be interviewed by the BBC before?
On the other hand, that wasn't really a fair interview in any way; certainly, it outlines the clear differences between British and American conservatism, and I got the impression that old mate was certainly trying to learn this young whippersnapper. But then, Ben Shapiro has had little interest in the past in debating fairly, talking over and attacking not the content of his opposition's arguments but the stance they take or the identity they possess. Sure, it's not fair, but them's the breaks when you live by the sword.
