Dr. Craig S. Wright\u2019s latest blog post, \u201cCollectivism and Protagoras of Abdera,\u201d touches on a few social-economic situations and debate styles that we often see in society. \u201cFaith Ridler (2021) managed to capture many of the aspects of intellectual dishonesty and bankruptcy in her article in the Daily Mail titled \u2018Father of capitalism\u2019 Adam Smith\u2019s grave is included in Edinburgh council\u2019s \u2018ludicrously biased\u2019 dossier of sites linked to slavery and colonialism,\u201d says Dr. Wright at the beginning of his blog post. \u201cThe article records the false accusations made against Adam Smith. In an attempt to tarnish capitalism and promote a socialist and collectivist agenda, Smith is portrayed as supporting slavery and racist practices.\u201d Dr. Wright goes on to explain that the practices used in the Daily Mail article mentioned above are not new or unique, but stem from techniques used throughout history to sway crowds and change public opinions on a situation. Dr. Wright goes on to tell the audience that Plato\u2019s writings showcased similar tactics. \u201cPlato employed the figure of Protagoras of Abdera (Cooper, ed., 1997) to demonstrate how truth can be twisted using false logic and appeal to emotion,\u201d says Dr. Wright.\u00a0 Dr. Wright argues that oftentimes, attempts to shift a crowd\u2019s opinion, like Ridler has attempted to do in her article, can be short-sighted\u2014especially when they disregard elements of the story that have paved the way for a better future or had a significant impact on the future. \u201cSuch changes may seem small. In removing famous figures of the past, it is important to remember the words of Machiavelli (Barnhart, 2013), specifically, \u2018One change always leaves the way open for the establishment of others.\u2019 The article reminds us that we cannot look upon the past in isolation and that if we allow small changes to occur, they lead to further changes,\u201d says Dr. Wright. \u201cThe aim should be to be \u2018the one whose walk is blameless, who does what is righteous, who speaks the truth from their heart\u2019 (Psalm 15:2-3).\u201d To learn more about social economics, attempting to change public opinion, and how even small changes can have a big impact on the future, you are going to want to read Dr. Craig S.
