Paul Wilson’s Partisanship Makes you Stupid

Based on his experience “in the political weeds monitoring the blathering of professional lunatics,” Paul described how partisanship makes you stupid.

Paul noted that, because of partisanship, “those who dissent from one tenet of their party are often accused of treason, stupidity, or malfeasance, while facing the secular equivalent of excommunication.” As one example, popular commentator Glenn Beck called Republican Senator Marco Rubio a “piece of garbage” for Rubio’s efforts to help Democrats pass immigration reform.

Paul recommended that people should instead converse “through logical argumentation.” However, as Paul lamented, non-partisan politicians “are becoming increasingly necessary, even as increasing polarization drives such politicians from the American political scene.”
