The problem with the public argument, as described by Eubanks, is that it’s not so much an actual argument taking place but merely a platform for the opposing sides to publicly insult one another. The type of arguments that often take publicly are that of the argumentative fallacy Ad Hominem where they are attacking the person rather than the argument. I think this is often done to discredit their authority in front of an audience.
Eubanks list the three features at the center of these “nonproductive” arguments as follows
1. “Public arguments are about winning and little else”- Eubanks states on page 4 that the public argument has taken on that of a sort of ‘win at all costs’ mentality which creates a sort of public platform where it doesn’t matter what you are arguing but you have to essentially win the argument to be right. When in reality, winning an argument doesn’t mean you’re right it just means you’re better at arguing.
2. “Public arguments are presented as two-sided even when they do not need to be”- On page 6 Eubanks adds on to the first feature by saying that with the concept of win-lose comes the idea that there has to be two sides to every argument, one that wins and one that loses, when in actuality we don’t have to pick sides, we just think we do because that’s how these arguments are being presented to us.
3. “Two-sided, winner-take-all argumentation has poisoned the public square”- Lastly on pages 6-7, Eubank goes on to stay that the public platform created by the U.S. political government has sort of ‘poisoned” the pubic by creating this idea that with the two opposing sides, each sides goal is to destroy the other ides argument when in fact it should be about making a sound argument that educates the public. Instead of merely crushing your opponent and winning the argument.
Like the video “This video will make you angry” says social media contributes to the issues with public arguments by perpetuating this idea that “you ae either with us or against us” which in turn helps spread the argument but also cause these alterations to the original argument that make it seem either worse or better than the original argument.”
