Rand Paul Says Persuasion is the Hallmark of a Free Society Meaning Open Debate on Campus on TV & Online


Back in the good ol’ days before Sal Alinsky’s 13 Rules for Radicals became the infamous playbook for the Democrat party, political disputes were decided by the power of persuasion, by the liberal ideal of free speech, free expression, let the better ideas win in the free marketplace of ideas, even though the media back then too were bent left, not so much the campuses, yet now with the internet providing social networking platforms bent left (with few exceptions such as Parler), all the means of electronic communication are bent left, and the campuses farther left than ever, all a long way from the classical liberalism espoused by patriotic Democrats of the past who were afraid to ignore debate.
