Often folks have shared with me what I call, great ‘rhetoric.’ What do I mean by ‘rhetoric’ in this context? Wordy constructs which, at first, sound great to the ear or to the eye. A good orator may fool the ear and a great writer certainly may fool the eye, but our job is to examine ‘rhetoric’ not just for the meanings of each word or phrase, but to the motive the speaker and writer have. It is paramount we think through the words before we act. The problem is when one really likes the person speaking or writing, it is difficult to truly look through our biased lens; the same could be said about an unpopular speaker or writer. Midst chaos, careful thinking is paramount.
