Rarely does an article change the minds of its viewers. For people gravitate toward articles that reinforce their beliefs, not articles that challenge their beliefs. Thus, one cannot expect his beliefs to be challenged unless he seeks for a challenger, unless he goes to the other side.
The goal of this project is to provide that challenger, not only for other's beliefs, but for my own. As often as possible, I will go to the comments section of various news sites, and rebut a comment with which I disagree. To prevent bias, I will alternate between rebutting conservatives and liberals. To increase quality (and to practice my timed-writing skills), I will spend thirty minutes writing a rebuttal by hand, and twenty minutes typing and revising it.
This project will last the entirety of Christmas Break, and at the end of it, I expect to see my beliefs changed or strengthened.
