Wesley Smith: Understanding the Debate Arena

Broadcast Running Time: 20:50

There are two ideological sides in our divided country.  But these two sides are coming at any issue from two very different foundations.  Back with us today is Wesley Smith (discovery.org), Chair and Senior Fellow at the Discovery Institute’s Center on Human Exceptionalism.   He examines the differences in debating today, including how each side has a different lexicon –  different meanings for the same words – and a different mindset.  Fundamentally, there is a different moral frame of reference which makes trying to discuss or debate any issue virtually impossible.  There are those on either side who are still operating under the old paradigm, refusing to accept that the debate arena will never be what it once was.
