You will recognize them by their logical fallacies. Familiarize yourself with logic and you will be able to see through the fog in politics the media, advertising campaigns and even in your own conversations with family, friends and acquaintances. But don’t blame yourself if you have been unaware of the principles of logic until now – it appears that the educational system has managed to neglect the art and science of logic for a very long time.
“I don’t want a nation of thinkers,
I want a nation of workers.”

Logic is the foundation of a good education and of honest discourse, but logical fallacies prevail today, even at the highest levels of government and industry.

“Mandalorian” star Gina Carano made headlines this week when she was fired from Disney. Her crime? Authoring a social media post comparing the censorship of conservatives to Nazi persecution…

It doesn’t matter that Disney is a hypocrite for allowing Carano’s liberal co-star to post photos comparing American-Mexico border detentions to Nazi concentration camps. Nor does it matter that Disney turned a blind eye when another of their employees posted a cartoon of a bloody woodchipper with the words: “MAGAkids go screaming, hats first, into the woodchipper.” Disney will get away with the Carano firing, and in a week the incident will be forgotten, yet another sign of the fact that we are losing.
