pk on Rhetoric

I’ve mentioned repeatedly how I fit ecology into my English teaching in 1967, 68: I assigned a NYT article contemplating global warming and so forth to my students as an example of contemporary rhetoric!
I also assigned a passage or two of Hitler, Mein Kampf! same reasoning.

Now I just read a line or two of Goebbels for the first time in my life: http://www.calvin.edu/academic/cas/gpa/goeb1.htm
Wow, I’m bowled over.

How is the human species still alive? Amazing, unaccountable.
