If you are like me, sometimes it is tough to come up with something to post about. That is where the Hofzinser Blogger Challenge came from.
This HBC is a doozy.
Think of an issue you believe in strongly. An issue that means a lot to you which also has many opponents.
Step back and think about how the other side thinks. What are the VALID arguments against your side of the issue. If you can't think of any you are clouding the issue. Really sit on their side and figure out how they can think your take on the issue is as wrong as you see theirs.
Create a post that argues for the other side. Don't be coy, don't be silly and don't be snarky. Take the challenge and really present an argument against your side in the issue.
You cannot hope to overcome opposers to your beliefs if you don't understand them, see there side as clearly as they do and respect their perspective.
I am in the midst of writing a post showing the benefits and advantages of a socialized central government as a solution to the ills of a free market. It is a toughie but I am getting through it.
Look at your issue. Do you understand it enough to make their argument? Could you convince someone of their side in the issue?
Can you argue the opposing side of your views on issues like:
the war in Iraq
George Bush's presidency
The role of religion in government or society
American foreign policies
Federal funding of stem cell research
The death penalty
A national health care plan
Capitalism vs. Socialism
If you do take the challenge, please link to this in your post. Be sure to leave a comment so I may feature your post here.
This is a real challenge, folks. I am dying to see which of you are up to it.
