APA’s Fast, Funny, and Passionate sessions at the national American Planning Association conferences are designed to entertain and educate. I’m serving as the moderator and a speaker at the Sunday morning session. My talk is called “Pin, Post, and Push to Promote Planning.” The purpose is to share lessons about how planners can use social media to promote planning.
Ad hominem (arguing against the person rather than the argument) – “Smart growth is in the U.N's Agenda 21 so we have to fight it to stop the U.N's plan to socialize the world.” “Concern about urban containment is just another example of Tea Party extremism.”
Anageon (relying on inevitability)- “Sprawl is inevitable, so there’s nothing we can do about it.”
