Persuasion

by CarlD

The art of persuasion is something like getting a car unstuck from mud. It takes patience and attention. If you floor it, you make a loud sound and a big mess but just dig the thing in deeper where it is. What you’ve got to do is rock it back and forth, slowly at first then using the momentum from each rock to get a little farther each time until eventually you get clear. Education is a form of persuasion, as of course is politics, although to say this is not to say that education and politics are the same thing.

There’s always more mud around, so you’re never done with this.
