1. Act charitably to all men and women, especially when dealing with differences of opinion. There are intelligent people out there with hugely varying views. I guarantee it, some of your opponents are smarter than you. A yelling match will not win them over.
2. Be clear about what it is that you’re saying. Find out why you are saying what you’re saying. Test your own theories, thinking them out to their final implications. Be consistent.
3. Cite your sources. Make sure they’re credible.
4. In all your logic, don’t forget beauty.
