This video, the third in a series, presents an editor giving a speech in defense of conservative government and values. After the speech, it analyzes the proofs the speaker has used- both the confirmatio, positive proof and refutatio, negative proof. A further example of proofs appear in historic speeches delivered by Angela Davis and Cesar Chavez. Interestingly the last two speakers, advocating progress causes, are not afforded as much time in the video as the first advocate of conservatism.
