I don't get it.

Was there a point to the video [or posting it as such]? I mean, I can appreciate it a little bit artistically as somewhat of a failed attempt at hooking someone into your particular mode of dialectic questioning. Hey, sometimes it works and interesting things happen. Here, nothing interesting happened. Posting the video to show that sometimes nothing interesting happens though, is mildly interesting. :D

Don't accept principles carelessly

It is possible to follow a moral principle w/o intentionally ever violating it. Thus, you have no excuse not to follow it. If you think it is NOT possible to follow a moral principle w/o intentionally ever violating it, you will not be careful with the principles you accept because you have a built in excuse not to follow it. Don't accept principles carelessly. Look for the good ones and follow them.

Haha! I love your interviews

Haha! I love your interviews Jan...too bad you didnt get a chance to confront her with one of her votes that intentionally violated her supposed moral principals. A suggestion though....try to keep going through the interview and only try to clarify their stances AFTER you make your point. I am not certain of her voting record....but say she voted for sanctions on Iran. After clarifying that she is supposed to "love thy neighbor" maybe you should ask if thats the case why she voted for sanctions on Iran..and is she aware that sanctions starve innocent people that have nothing to do with their government's policies. Then ask if starving your neighbor is a loving act. Not to be critical....but these representatives could be forced to look into the mirror easier if they didnt feel like they were answering the same question repeatedly(I know and you know they didnt really answer to begin with....but in their heads they think they did). Anyway...I always enjoy your interviews.
