Do you argue in a political debate to express your point or to change their mind for the better
Sadly to change a mind but RARELY is that the case
It’s why I ask my friends to listen to rush for a week before they form an opinion. 7 times out of 10 they come out with a different view point.
If they can argue somewhat rationally, then my goal is to learn.
My target is the bystanders or audience, not the zealot in the debate. 😉
