Secretary Pompeo today's twitter: "Woke-ism, multiculturalism, all the -isms — they're not who America is. They distort our glorious founding and what this country is all about. Our enemies stoke these divisions because they know they make us weaker. "

“Censorship, wokeness, political correctness, it all points in one direction – authoritarianism, cloaked as moral righteousness.” – Secretary of State Michael R. Pompeo.

I DON’T BELIEVE IN RIOTING!!! Congress should be working for the American People, but they don’t. They are out for their own self gain. President Trump has been the ONLY President that has been out to help the American People. I can’t believe that the members of Congress are following Nancy Pelosi and letting her deciding everything. I believe that Congress should be put on Term Limits, they shouldn’t have Life Time Health Insurance, or be able to vote their own raises. This shows that they don’t work for us, but they are out for their gain. The economy has been Booming, jobs are coming back to America, and I Believe if Nancy Pelosi had left President Trump alone, he could have made a Huge Dent in the National Debt. I’m 45 years old, and I was told that Social Security wouldn’t be there for when I retire, I can understand why, because Nancy Pelosi used money from Social Security to try to Impeach President Trump. She has Too much power, and she needs to be removed from Office.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Law_of_thought

1, The law of identity

The law of identity: 'Whatever is, is.'

For all a: a = a.

Regarding this law, Aristotle wrote:

    First then this at least is obviously true, that the word "be" or "not be" has a definite meaning, so that not everything will be "so and not so". Again, if "man" has one meaning, let this be "two-footed animal"; by having one meaning I understand this:—if "man" means "X", then if A is a man "X" will be what "being a man" means for him. (It makes no difference even if one were to say a word has several meanings, if only they are limited in number; for to each definition there might be assigned a different word. For instance, we might say that "man" has not one meaning but several, one of which would have one definition, viz. "two-footed animal", while there might be also several other definitions if only they were limited in number; for a peculiar name might be assigned to each of the definitions. If, however, they were not limited but one were to say that the word has an infinite number of meanings, obviously reasoning would be impossible; for not to have one meaning is to have no meaning, and if words have no meaning our reasoning with one another, and indeed with ourselves, has been annihilated; for it is impossible to think of anything if we do not think of one thing; but if this is possible, one name might be assigned to this thing.)

    — Aristotle, Metaphysics, Book IV, Part 4 (translated by W.D. Ross)




2, The law of non-contradiction

The law of non-contradiction (alternately the 'law of contradiction'[4]): 'Nothing can both be and not be.'[2]

In other words: "two or more contradictory statements cannot both be true in the same sense at the same time": ¬(A∧¬A).

In the words of Aristotle, that "one cannot say of something that it is and that it is not in the same respect and at the same time". As an illustration of this law, he wrote:

    It is impossible, then, that "being a man" should mean precisely not being a man, if "man" not only signifies something about one subject but also has one significance ... And it will not be possible to be and not to be the same thing, except in virtue of an ambiguity, just as if one whom we call "man", and others were to call "not-man"; but the point in question is not this, whether the same thing can at the same time be and not be a man in name, but whether it can be in fact.

    — Aristotle, Metaphysics, Book IV, Part 4 (translated by W.D. Ross)




3, The law of excluded middle

The law of excluded middle: 'Everything must either be or not be.'[2]

In accordance with the law of excluded middle or excluded third, for every proposition, either its positive or negative form is true: A∨¬A.

Regarding the law of excluded middle, Aristotle wrote:

    But on the other hand there cannot be an intermediate between contradictories, but of one subject we must either affirm or deny any one predicate. This is clear, in the first place, if we define what the true and the false are. To say of what is that it is not, or of what is not that it is, is false, while to say of what is that it is, and of what is not that it is not, is true; so that he who says of anything that it is, or that it is not, will say either what is true or what is false
    — Aristotle, Metaphysics, Book IV, Part 7 (translated by W.D. Ross)[3]
