There seem to be a lot of letters attacking Fresno State Professor Andrew Fiala for views he expresses in his Nov. 12 Fresno Bee ethics column. warning of Donald Trump’s resemblance to Machiavelli.
I wish those attacking him had attended one of his classes at Fresno State through OLLI (Osher Lifelong Learning Institute). If they had, they would know what his loyal class attendees know – that he bends over backward to show both sides. He presents all sides of an issue, and shows empathy and understanding for all positions.
He actually engages in logic and critical thinking to identify and solve problems, something sorely lacking in today’s political circus. His current mission is to restore civility in public discourse through the Fresno State Ethics Center. Could anyone actually have a problem with that goal? It will be interesting to see responses to his Nov. 19 column on having a peaceful Thanksgiving.
