My two cents on the state of argument

From an original essay with Princess Bride overtones published this weekend by American Spectator Online:

"As a few commentators on the left and right have both noticed, liberals embrace the smug life. People who remember how to make an argument tend to be the ones whose speeches provoke 'trigger warnings' among sheltered college students, presumably because moving coherently from a premise to a conclusion can intimidate anyone trapped in a 'safe' space."

Note:  American Spectator Online has been redesigned since that essay was originally published. As a result, the essay has been re-titled and re-filed.
