Rhetoric – which is designed to emotionally manipulate – is not dialectic

likes this

Don’t you wish everyone was taught the trivium, so they could realize how they are being manipulated?

Never confuse rhetoric – which is designed to emotionally manipulate – with dialectic. Both the mainstream news and government statements are not dialectic, but rather rhetoric disguised as pseudo-dialectic. And remember that there is neither truth nor falsehood in rhetoric, there is no meaningful information content whatsoever. It may point toward the truth, it may point away from the truth, but it cannot be the truth.

    Kinda hilarious considering Vox Popoli is 100% polemic.

    You see comment section pros constantly trying to lure polemicists into supposed dialectic arguments.

    Total wank fests.
