How to Lose a Dispute

I am declaring a new rule: As soon as one side in a particular dispute or disagreement begins persecution of the other side they have automatically lost and the other side is the victor by default (and if both sides are persecuting each other then they both lose; there’s no excuse for persecution, although the side being persecuted more loses just a little less 🙂 ). If those on one side of a disagreement have to resort to persecution to try to win, they obviously don’t have enough valid arguments to back up their position.

The Heretic has spoken.
