Disassociating the message from the speaker. Is it really appropiate?
Many TED viewers have stated that we should only focus on the message given by the speaker and not mind the speaker's background. In the case of Emiliano Salinas his father's background and his affiliation to the cult group NXIVM stand out.
I think that in order to understand a speech, its consequences and relevance you should also consider the speakers background and the context. Specially if the speaker is calling to civil action in a complex situation like the war on drugs in Mexico...
What is your take on this?
