No war can be fought today without powerful narratives based on persuasive discourses. The war in Ukraine is no exception to this rule. In an era when we have the most formidable tools of communication, there is so little information! While analyzing the public discourses, so little attention is paid to the logical structure of the arguments put forward by our elites that one comes to wonder why are they constantly trying to insult our intelligence?
Maria Cernat invited Ben Burgis, an academic working for Georgia State University, and author of famous books on logic such as “Give Them an Argument: Logic for the Left” and “Cancelling Comedians while the World Burns,” to discuss some of the most important arguments put forward by both the Russian and Western governments to justify their actions and strategies for the war in Ukraine.
