Quote from: Altissimo on October 01, 2015, 10:16:23 PMi have such a hate/love relationship with discussing politics, like i enjoy it but it makes me mad SUPER quick but i still feel obligated to defend myself and my arguments get shittier as I get madder and don't take the proper time to respond with a well-thought-out argument and then i get upset and cry and it's really dumb.
Quote from: FireArrow on October 01, 2015, 10:23:43 PMEh, I don't know why I partake in those threads so much. The only interesting debate we've really had here was the evolution one, everything else is either a shit fest or just bantering that dies in 1 to 2 posts.

Quote from: Tobbeh99 on October 02, 2015, 02:31:42 PMWhen it comes to politics, I hate that I need well-based logical arguments, and that I can't go with something like "I want it so" or "it should be so". And since politics is always about arguing, that's why I really hate politics.
Quote from: Tobbeh99 on April 21, 2016, 02:56:11 PMFuck logic, that shit is boring, lame and does not always support my opinions.
Quote from: Ruto on October 03, 2015, 10:35:03 AM*reminds you the people you're arguing with can't vote, has never lived without their parent(s), uses high school books that are biased or haven't been updated since the Bronze Age.

Quote from: Waddle Bro on October 03, 2015, 10:50:52 AMto be fair though, the arguments themselves are separate from the people, but it's understandable. like if the people are uneducated, it doesn't necessarily mean their arguments are garbage, but one can say there's a correlation.

Quote from: blueflower999 on October 03, 2015, 12:26:34 PMYes yes all the law abiding citizens should have their guns confiscated and the government should keep all the money and anyone who sees things any differently is uneducated and dumb
Quote from: FireArrow on October 03, 2015, 12:24:32 PMThat's basically every informal fallacy right? Any logic that doesn't specifically adress the argument has some fancy shmancy name.

Quote from: the differenceThe term dialectics is not synonymous with the term debate. While in theory debaters are not necessarily emotionally invested in their point of view, in practice debaters frequently display an emotional commitment that may cloud rational judgement. Debates are won through a combination of persuading the opponent; proving one's argument correct; or proving the opponent's argument incorrect. Debates do not necessarily require promptly identifying a clear winner or loser; however clear winners are frequently determined by either a judge, jury, or by group consensus. The term dialectics is also not synonymous with the term rhetoric, a method or art of discourse that seeks to persuade, inform, or motivate an audience. Concepts, like "logos" or rational appeal, "pathos" or emotional appeal, and "ethos" or ethical appeal, are intentionally used by rhetoricians to persuade an audience.
