LOGIC. THE NEED TO EDUCATE, AND MAKE IT THE ENEMY OF IRRATIONAL, SELF-CENTERED, AND PSEUDO-SCIENTIFIC THOUGHT. PT 4.

Face, Silhouette, Communication


 













...THE VAGUE/UNDEFINED MESSAGE.

Is a Foundation for many BASELESS, UNPROVEN, IRRATIONAL, DECEPTIVE AND ULTIMATELY DESTRUCTIVE LINES OF THOUGHT. THE FACT IT IS STILL USED SO EFFECTIVELY SAYS A GREAT ABOUT THE LACK OF EDUCATION IN THE DISCIPLINE OF LOGIC, THAT STILL UNDERMINES THE INTELLECTUAL DEVELOPMENT AND PROGRESS THAT SOCIETY NEEDS FOR ITS MEMBERS TO MAKE TRULY INFORMED AND WELL THOUGHT OUT DECISIONS, ABOUT HOW BEST TO IMPROVE THE POLITICAL SYSTEM.

HERE ARE A FEW EXAMPLES:

"WE MUST BE A NATION THAT STANDS UP TO OUR ENEMIES."

"RESTRICTING RELIGIOUS BELIEFS WILL DESTROY THIS COUNTRY."

"FREE SPEECH MUST NEVER BE DENIED TO ANYONE, OR WE WILL
FIND OURSELVES LIVING UNDER A TOTALITARIAN GOVERNMENT."

Do some of These Sound Familiar?  Look at Them Carefully, what can you Conclude, or Even Reasonably Infer from anything Contained within the Words? 

ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.



UNLIKE THE:
THE UNSUPPORTED CONCLUSION/BASELESS ASSERTION.
(WHERE CATEGORIES LIKE THE ECONOMY, FOREIGN POLICY, THE 
CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM etc, ARE REFERENCED, OFTEN INACCURATELY 
AND WITH NO SPECIFIC INFORMATION...


THE VAGUE/UNDEFINED MESSAGE.
THERE ARE NO PARTICULAR AREAS OF GOVERNMENT, SOCIETY, OR 
THE POLITICAL SYSTEM THAT ARE MENTIONED AT ALL.

THERE IS NO REFERENCE, IN ANY WAY, TO A SPECIFIC CATEGORY OR AREA THAT MIGHT AID OTHERS IN RESEARCHING FOR ANY FACTUAL DATA THAT WOULD SUPPORT SUCH GENERIC STATEMENTS.

THE SECRET OF THE SUCCESS FOUND WHEN POLITICIANS USE THE 
THE VAGUE/UNDEFINED MESSAGE, IS THAT THE LACK OF CONTEXT 
LEAVES OPEN POSSIBLE IMPLICATIONS THAT ARE ONLY RESTRICTED 
BY THE LEVEL OF IMAGINATION, PARANOIA,OR PERSONAL PREJUDICES
THAT EXIST INSIDE THE MIND OF THE LISTENER.
