Happened to read the Snyder essay and then watch the Schwartzenegger video; they provided a stark contrast in two modes of persuasion, logic and emotion. Each can be effective for specific audiences. "American Abyss" was remarkable for its scholarship and perspective, as I had long sought an analysis of how so many members of Trump's party could support his use of blatant misinformation.

I was prepared to dismiss Schwartzenegger, whose past record for inclusive language has not been stellar, but was surprised to find myself grudgingly impressed.
