Many of us want a family. We want to be part of a family, and eventually, we want to build our own with someone we love.

But some of us don't get that option as easily as others, and medicine and technology gives people the chance to have the family they've always wanted and worked hard for.

There are few people more deserving than +Frank Coleman and Heather.

How the logic and persuasion of arguments appear to me, when following a debate of rhetoric.

Tron Disc Fights.

The arguments themselves are the discs. Each throw a claim, each response a deflection, complete with dodges as point and counterpoint zip back and forth between the various players in the discussion. You soon begin to see the paths of round about arguments, to block lightning fast fallacies while being able to easily deflect curved or bounced trick shots of persuasion turning them back on those who would try such angles and leave themselves open in return.

The only place the metaphor breaks down is in the closing of such arguments. You can win the match be deresolution of your opponents arguments, their disc, taking the point.

But there is also a win condition in resolution, where after deresolving the arguments, and the discs have exchanged the data between their users, the players in the arguments, that a new disc is produced. A new argument and perspective.

It's the third option that I really play for.

Team names always work. It doesn't matter if the team's composition or manager changes.

The team stays.

They train us in High School, Pep-rallies, and School Spirit, and Sports.

They indoctrinate the young adults to pick a team, and to find comraderie and bonding in that shared identity.

Support your team soon becomes support the troops... and then support your party.

'Lesser evil' indoctrination begins with football, and ends with democrats and republicans being so polarized that both groups are too busy blaming the other for their evils that they never really consider their own leadership is in on the con.
