Choose your argument, take thirty paces …

With thanks to the always interesting Zenpundit blog.

I am thinking a great deal these days about how I might sharpen my own arguments – not because I have found myself seriously challenged in any way (though that would be welcomed), but I do have a creeping feeling that my arguments are becoming somewhat obtuse. Time for a reality check and a reassessment of long-held assumption.

I think the flowchart above is pretty cool – if only I had this when debating in pubs with my Socialist counterparts back in my college days in the UK (yes, with a capital 'S' – the term in America is something of a joke and those who merrily bandy it about have obviously never met one; in short: President Obama is many things, but he is no socialist)!
