Yes, I stir the pot, because teaching argument on the internet is like running a class in a locker room, and I can’t issue quizzes and demand homework, so the way to cause discourse is to create controversy.

I know this because in marketing and advertising it is the secret to getting the public to talk about a subject and learn about it. Hence talking head shows on tv, survivor, and every other damned idiot-nonsense.

And hence *controversial positioning*.
