Lesson learned

To the editor:

In this and in future eras, students in our public schools need to pursue a course of study under Citizenship in which they are taught how to recognize and to how resist Political Fantasy — Political Propaganda.

One of the popular ploys of the Propagandist is to make some typically outrageous claim against their Opponents and then challenge them to “prove me wrong.”

Generally, one can not prove a negative.

The solution is to turn the table — Thus, an Objector need only to challenge the Propagandist to first “prove himself right.” When he can not, the Objector’s job is neatly and conclusively done.
