I'll get back to the topic but like idiots everywhere, you guys are going to have the stupid things you say pointed out and if you, like idiots everywhere, find that insulting, do what other idiots do and whine and complain. I'm really liking this use of the word "like". Thanks Okie! Now you <insert insult> have already admitted that conservatism increases or prospers in the absences of critical thinking. You have actually even come down against the idea of critical thinking as a method of learning. OK although I am unsurprised by this given all the things you've all written what exactly do you see as an alternative to critical thinking or what do you suggest replacing the learning method with? I'm just flabbergasted that anyone would suggest that critical thinking was wrong and that they would openly admit that their political party does better in the absence of critical thinking. That's quite an admission by you three but nothing I didn't already know.
