1. In chapter three, drug dealers living with their moms, the main argument is brought into light by economist, John Kenneth Galbraith. He makes the statement that “We associate truth with convenience” (86) and composes the phrase “conventional wisdom”(86).

If certain information sounds valid, the public will usually, not question or doubt the information because it is socially impolite to question.
This creates an environment that allows the speaker to go deeper, and sometimes even to come to new realizations” (Mulvania).

By dividing the arguments he allows himself to convince readers of one aspect of his argument at a time. The assertions act as levels, if a reader isn’t convinced after assertion #1, the following assertion has the ability to further appeal to logic and perhaps convince the reader of the previous point. This operates much like the foot in the door strategy which involves “getting a person to agree to a large request by first setting them up by having that person agree to a modest request” (Patel). Under the same ideology, if Dicpinigaitis gets a reader to agree with a small part of his argument it is more likely they will agree to the argument as a whole.
Does our education system actually help us learn, or is it mere memorization of facts. I’ve come to this realization where “not-so-hard-working” students can obtain greater rewards than students who are more diligent. Most papers today are not original. With many open sources such as SparkNotes, Wikipedia, and Google, hardly anything that students create requires much effort. Honestly, is what I’m “learning” relevant?
Singer begins new parts of his argument with rhetorical questions.

It may be beneficial to discuss this topic for people who were never enlightened on the stigma of reading and have an intention of possibly changing the world’s idea of reading. Especially with the lack of reading that is happening throughout this current generation. Some may argue that we, as a society, are reading more than ever due to technology.
Dascal (2008) suggest that one of the problems in our understanding as well as in use of dichotomies has been by defining it as a realist and semantic category. He proposes that it should be viewed more in terms of “strategic arguments” made by contenders for certain
Any reasonable person could tell that, but for some reason Gasland blantaly seems to ignore the other side. Some may view this as a strong point, but an educated argument will always include the counterargument as it lends credibility to the piece and makes more likely to agree with the argument being made. Gasland as an argument piece would’ve benefited by ceding some point or simply explaining the counterargument, but without that key element Gasland just appears
Learning about the client does not quality as definition of that client however expands the possibilities about the client that the counsellor is ready to entertain. The culture of a person is particular to them and the closer I am to that person, the easier it is to glimpse into their world, even if the culture is quite different to mine. Learning about the Tiriti O Waitangi has been a beautiful learning curve and I can genuinely say that I have gained a deeper understanding of how the core conditions mirror the original intentions of the Tiriti - not to colonise a person’s way of life.
