The MOST important thing you can do for Liberty: Communicate Ideas Effectively

If you find yourself always speaking to people that agree with you, you aren't changing any minds. To the contrary, reaching out to those who disagree is the only way to spread a message. Too often, individuals become frustrated with argumentative discussion and ignore this basic truth in order to make themselves feel more generally accepted by the people around them. They may say - "My father disagrees, so I quit discussing X issue with him." That strategy only leads to stagnation of our message. On the other hand, learning how to communicate ideas more effectively to the "stubborn dads" of the world is far superior to admitting defeat and the fastest way to spread the message of liberty.

I ask you to trust me for a moment and read one of the most amazing books to ever grace humanity - How To Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie. This book can be found on Amazon (link provided below) for anywhere from $4 to $15. Each chapter is only a few pages long and written very well making it an extremely easy read. If you are truly interested in spreading the message, I strongly urge you to read this wonderful book.

I promise that you will find it very helpful. If you don't, I will personally write each of you a handwritten letter of apology. However, I would venture to bet that I don't have to write any.

This book will change your life. I have not yet met any exceptions.

Very Good Post... never get any sharper if you only talk to people who agree with you. I love going on the neo-con forums because it helps me to better articulate my points when I am being challenged. I am gonna see if my library has that book.

Thank you...

I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

Good post and good point!

I agree. I've laid out some lengthy arguments on one of my first posts here on the DP in case anyone is looking to build upon theirs.

Also, I'd recommend changing the Amazon link to the link at the top of the page which benefits the DP!
