Quick quote from my friend Mark
"Our goal is not to make up people's minds for them, but to make the decision making process so agonizing that the only way to get out is to think."
I figured I'd write it down here before I lost track of it. He may have been quoting somebody else, or it may be original. Either way, it's telling of an important strategy of rhetoric -- I have faith that getting a listener/reader to really think is even more powerful than drubbing them over the head with repetition (though that probably has its place).
