What is a point/counterpoint discussion?
In a point/counterpoint discussion, TKDTutor presents points made by another author and then either presents points that agree with the author's points or presents counterpoints that point out, in TKDTutor's opinion, errors, inconsistencies, illogic, or even falsehoods that appear in the author's points. If you agree with the author's original points, you may not agree with TKDTutor's counterpoints, but they may at least cause you to rethink your position.
Feel free to submit your own points or counterpoints to the ones presented here.
As a master chief in the Navy, I was responsible for writing performance evaluations on sailors under my command. I once had a sailor complain to me because his evaluation was not as good as that of a fellow sailor. He said that the other sailor had made many more mistakes than he had made. I agreed. I told him that other sailor had made more mistakes. However, I told him that the other sailor did twice as much work as he did and that the other sailor corrected his mistakes, learned from them, and did not make the same mistakes again; while, on the other hand, he had little opportunity to make any mistakes since he seldom did anything.
I write a lot about the martial arts. I think I get it right most of the time, but I sometimes get it wrong. When shown an error in my thinking, I correct it.
