Dim vs. Wit: Freedom Fighter or Terrorist

Dim: One man’s freedom fighter is another man’s terrorist!

Wit: Really? was George Washington a freedom fighter or a terrorist?

Dim: I says that he is a freedom fighter. But, to a Brit ?

Wit: Stop for a second as I am trying to explore your original point. Is Osama bin Ladin a freedom fighter or a terrorist?

Dim: I says that he is a terrorist. But, to a Muslim ?

Wit: Wait again as I continue to explore your original point. You know that George Washington was a freedom fighter and Osama bin Ladin is a terrorist. Both of these judgments can be proved with reference to objective facts. However, you lack the independent judgment to assert this factual knowledge because someone else may erroneously disagree. If you can’t trust your own judgment on these facts, then what stock should I put in your first assertion?

Dim: But everybody knows that one man’s freedom fighter is another man’s terrorist.

Wit: However, another man’s opinion that a freedom fighter is a terrorist and that a terrorist is a freedom fighter does not change the facts, which are immune to subjective opinion.

  2. I also enjoyed the Dim vs. Wit debate.
    I think there is a big difference between a terrorist and a freedom fighter.

    A Freedom fighter is fighting for something, they may be right or wrong, they may be crazy, but they can identify what their cause is.

    A Terrorist has no identifiable cause. They are always vague to their reasons. The American Revolution was spawned because of intollerable treatment from the British Government. 9/11 was protesting ?, Big difference.

  3. A great concretization. I would like it if you would publish more frequently. But then, I’d like it if I would do so, too.
