Opening Insights: Principles and Communication
In 2017 amidst student chaos and protests, Ben Shapiro was invited as a Guest Speaker to UC Berkeley. During his talk he was asked by a student to defend his stance on abortion.
Shapiro's position is not important, what is important is his the validity and clarity of the points he communicates while engaging with the student. He communicates the 5 Absolutes and the 5 'I's of communication (principles experienced and taught within the PWI Co-Lab), thus engaging the student in an Experiential Socratic Learning process. Additionally, this argument brings to to light the question of intrinsic value of not just the human being, but the human spirit (our individual and shared sentience).
