The Argument Sketch

Have you ever had the feeling that some of your personal “arguments” with friends and acquaintances begin to polarize along what appear to be political divisions of Left and Right?

Take any disagreement, and one side may be right and the other wrong. Or, both sides may be wrong. Or, both sides might be correct – but “arguing” in differing contexts.

However, when facts and feelings are in conflict, watch out! And when one side in an argument uses facts to support a case, then the opposition often retorts that facts are “uncaring” and therefore, they “care” and the other side doesn’t. Which to them, is a winning argument.

“Facts don’t care about your feelings,” notes Danielle noting Ben Shapiro. You don’t have to be mean or uncaring just by insisting on sticking to the facts, she “argues” in this discussion with Robert Vaughan. Unfortunately, facts may be facts, but often do not relate to what one side in an argument sees as being relevant.

It may well be that the very nature of “argument” makes it impossible to have one in a way that “feels” Just Right for all sides.

Trump in South Korea

Added to the wreckage of celebrity personalities facing public moral outrage over past alleged sexual improprieties, NBC News announced on November 29 its termination of Matt Lauer, citing similar improprieties for its response to a single complaint.

It is therefore fitting that our discussion today includes some reflections on America’s Great Sexual “Wreckoning” – our own term derived from the wreckage of celebrities and high profile personalities who seem to have exhibited very little “self awareness” about the inappropriateness of certain sexual conduct.

That discussion with Western University Associate Professor of Political Science, Salim Mansur, begins with a greater reckoning – a “Great Reckoning” that is already underway and is being favorably influenced by the world leadership of U.S. President Donald Trump.

The significance of Trump’s recent Asian tour and of major revolutionary developments in Saudi Arabia has been clouded by media distractions concerning domestic sexual improprieties by local celebrities. This may be more than coincidence, for sexuality too plays a significant role in the wider politics of world affairs. Continue reading »

Hugh Hefner

With the passing of Playboy founder and icon Hugh Hefner on September 27 at age 91, subsequent discussions about his legacy and the influence that Playboy continues to have today have been disappointingly reduced to a feminist debate about whether Hefner was a “liberator” or an “oppressor”.

In stark contrast to the myopic discussions of sex usually heard in such a restricted context, our in-studio guest Salim Mansur brings a breath of fresh air to yet another discussion considered politically incorrect: the celebration of sex between men and women.

Says Salim:

Just as Freud pointed out, ultimately everything boils down to sex. The whole of life throughout history is ultimately about the primordial basic relationship between a male and a female. Out of that relationship comes great art, great music, great painting – and out of it also comes the dirtiest violence, misogyny, abuse, excesses. That’s life.”

Woman shouts at man

Feminist claims that women in North America are suffering at the hands of a patriarchy amount to little more than propaganda. Perhaps it would be more accurate to say that we live in a matriarchy under which the suffering are men.

Laws in Canada, the United States, and other jurisdictions in the Western world have become alarmingly gender unbalanced – giving women far more legal rights than men. From prostitution laws to family and child custody issues, discriminating against men has become the ruling principle.

However, this is but one narrow manifestation of the politics of sex, which is no different in principle than the politics of race, gender, language, or ethnicity. In addition to the traditional sexual tensions between men and women, we now have the added complication of other politically recognized genders.

There is no doubt that sexuality plays a critical role in shaping human identity, behavior, and personal values. But sex and sexual identity have become a key political weapon in the continual war of political correctness. Continue reading »

This my rifle...

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

The tyranny which the Second Amendment was written to guard against can be seen forming quite clearly in the actions and goals of Democrats today. They’re gunning for guns, an agenda Democrats have worked towards since long before the tragic event in Orlando last week.

Consider it an object lesson in objects: While the left wails about the objects (weapons) used by criminals and terrorists, it refuses to acknowledge how it contributes to the conditions that make such events what some are now calling “the new normal.” But there’s nothing ‘normal’ about what happened in Orlando last week.
