Liberals and progressives?

why is that Liberals are so interested in the emotional argument rather than the factual argument?

they're more interested in Social policies rather than economic ones.

  • What happened is that in the 20th century leftists lost the economic-based argument about free market economies. Communism was discredited and defeated and the supposedly inevitable takeover of the state by the proletariat never really occurred. So in the wake of that bitter loss they turned to Cultural Marxism, whereby they slowly and gradually chip away at the foundations of Western culture and civilization itself. And on that front they have been much more successful. Look at Western Europe for example. In the wake of terror attack after terror attack, with hundreds of their people killed and maimed, you have European leaders who are still so hamstrung by political correctness that they won't even defend their own civilization against the threat of Islam. They're afraid and they're spineless. That's the result of Cultural Marxism.

  • Because facts are against them, so they have no choice but to appeal to emotion. That and the entirety of their beliefs are based on emotion, especially things like envy, class hatred, and guilt. If they tried to operate on facts, they'd fall flat on their faces.

    Plus people are stupid, and it's a lot easier to ship them into a frenzy over some imagined oppression or insult than it is to get them to evaluate facts and make an informed decision.

  • not completely accurate, but I'll ignore that for now. Social and economic policies are usually pretty closely related, but to get to your question. Most liberals live in urban areas with access to more public goods (public university, hospitals, police, etc) and so they want those public goods to be available. They also face a lot of the problems of the city ( polution, homelessness, unemployment, gentrification, etc) and so they want policies that address these issues. Most conservatives live in more rural areas that require more self-reliance than interdependancy which explains a lot if their policy choices.

  • Well, you create a framework that supports only one conclusion, your own.

    But I have found anti-PC people to really be resistant to logic, facts, and rational thinking.

    Take for example climate change.

    Is that an emotional argument?

    • well kind of because the goalposts keep moving as far as climate change.

      no one wants to provide any real data. like for example what percentage is mankind contributing to climate change.

      I truly scientific argument would be able to provide the exact data. and people are skeptical because they've been lied to about this so many times in the past.

      and all the climate predictions are wrong.

    • Show All
    • we'll definitely yes when they don't provide a scientific argument.

      when all the predictions are wrong then yes it is an emotional Outreach!

      real scientist numbers and data. no one wants to provide that other than outlandish predictions like in the Inconvenient Truth.

    • Oh, so Stephen Hawking, the only physicist in history to come even close to creating unified theory is offering an emotional argument. Because that's what he does.

      Got it.

      :D
