How to remove the you from the lecture? You do it better than most, but, verily, it is an impossible task. You lecture “you,” and maybe this other “you” learns that you were right all along.
But no one argues what they truly believe. What is the point? Truth needs no converts.
I love this piece. The writing: bright and swaddled. The argument tightly ladled. I do wonder the counterpoint(s) — maybe you will rankle some more on a different day.
