makaveli8x8, Zappa, and pris are great posters * 2
    #22533102 - 11/16/15 05:12 PM (5 years, 3 months ago)

Who consistently brings a differing opinion to all topics.  He may seem like a troll at times, but often his points are extremely relevant, even correct! This forum would be a lot duller without him.  While his grammar may not be on point, his point is FINE.  Just because a poster is contradictory or goes against the popular opinion does not make him/her a bad poster.  Dissent and intellectual discussion is one of the keys to enlightenment.  Without Makaveli and Zappa and Pris we would just have a circle jerk that contributes nothing to the intellect.  Dissent is necessary and should be prized.

Now, I am not sure whether they actually believe in the opinions that they espouse.  What I do know is, is that by having the debate they aid us in creating an intellectual atmosphere that promotes critical thinking. You should always value the dissenter.  The dissenter provides one with a valuable lesson.  Without dissent, knowledge turns into DOGMA and no one wants that. 

We have a tendency towards a liberal bias on this forum.  My university also has a tendency towards a liberal bias.  So, even if I disagree with the right wing discussion of the above posters, I recognize its benefits.  If I was unable to argue my point of view on any given subject, then what is that point of view worth?  Argument + Logic leads to real conclusions.  If you cannot defend your position logically, then you are false.  This may not apply to spiritual considerations, but that is not the point.

We should promote dissent and formal argumentation rather than disregard it as "Right Wing" or "Left wing" nutters.

What do you think?

Zappa and Makeavelli I can see, but Pris no.
Zappa usually brigns an informed opinion with him, but pris is mostly just opinionated without much to back it up. not always tho

We still need the opposition though.  The opposition is the key to an enlightened society.

I like Zappa and Pris but makaveli strikes me as a total idiot. Those three are also FAR from the only posters whose views differ from the "norm" (whatever the hell that is).

sure, opposition is important, but I don't think pris deserves to be singled out as a shining example, just as many of the left-siders don't because a lot of them aren't actually that interesting or informed or anything in discussion. Simply disagreeing isn't enough to create an engaging discussion
in any case, there are better more level-headed posters on the 'right' side I am sure... aren't there?

There are not many.  I will admit that I added pris last second though.

For reference, this post isn't essentially about theposters in the title.  This post is about dissenters.  DUUUR.

Nothing.  I am just making a point.

Try abstaining bro, it might be good for you.  It's worked out real well for me.
