Townhall, as usual, is being biased. The quote they give about giving no context for the Gettysburg Address is not a quote at all, and in the article they even say that the guidelines say to refrain from giving historical context at the outset.
They then attack word cloud methods. I guess just because. Ignore the fact that they’ve already read the Gettysburg Address, studying the wording used and how often they are used is obviously an evil liberal agenda. Please, what nonsense is this?
And then deconstructionism is evil, apparently, because…well, just because. Deconstructing an idea is obviously an attempt to obscure it, not explore it more.
How exactly does deconstructing Lincoln’s speech make it LESS understandable? How does studying the wording make it LESS pertinent? How is deconstructionism bad at all?
