I TAKE DOWN ROBERT WRIGHT'S LATEST
on THE FRAY.

I received a couple of pats on the back from my fellow Fraysters for this, but I don't think this is my best work. I was merely demonstrating how easy and little skill it takes to use the type of argument that Wright employs here -- assign false motives to your opposition, and then beat down the strawman. Wright did this before with pro-life objections to embryonic stem cell research. It's a lot easier to win the argument when you give yourself a gun and give your opponents a knife.
