Assignment 3: Please rewrite the following statement without plagiarizing:
In Chapter 4, The Money of Fools, Jacobs makes a case that the intellectual currency of words may incline a person either to wisdom or foolishness. The keywords in our vocabularies may cultivate and reinforce our prejudices (8991). While keywords have a place, as they sum up areas of meaning, they also have a tendency to become parasitic: they enter the mind and displace thought (95). When it comes to differing with others we lose something of our humanity by militarizing discussion and debate; and we lose something of our humanity by dehumanizing our interlocutors (98). By dichotomizing arguments we distance ourselves from our opponents and dismiss complexities and nuances.

Assignment 4: Review links to a talk by Alan Jacobs, an NPR segment, and an article by Washington Post columnist Max Boot.  After reviewing the three links, compose a forum which answers these questions: What are the facts and thinking processes that each piece embodies?  What is the message and/or argument of each piece?  What is its value for life in America today?  What are your most important take-aways from each piece.  What are your personal feelings about each piece?
