Dialectic Thinking Exercise to prepare for Exploration 11 
Dialectics is a way of considering reasonable and different arguments and points of view.  The idea is to try to find out how and why people come to different rationale conclusions on difficult subjects.
To do this, you have to be able to consider and to analyze opinions and ideas both similar and much different to your own.  Let’s try this.
1st Goal: Brainstorm support and evidence for both of these positions.  Work to create three specific reasons to support each position.
Good reasons that people support the war in Afghanistan and wish it to continue.
Good reasons that people do not support the war in Afghanistan and wish it to cease.
