1/3 2/3 3/3 Logic is about understanding reality in a non-contradictory way and how can we see things for what they are. Metaphysical Laws 1.Identity 2.Causality 3.Non-Contradiction Topic: Today's show is a personal exercise to help me let go of a long-standing resentment against comedian and political commentator Bill Maher. Cory, Osborne and I analyze several clips from his HBO show, Real Time With Bill Maher, primarily focusing on two fallacies: composition and division. Many tangents result! Composition: This fallacy is a result of reasoning from the properties of the parts of the whole to the properties of the whole itself--it is an inductive error. Division: This fallacy is the reverse of composition. It is the misapplication of deductive reasoning. ...

Full Video – 165: The Essential Ingredients of A Psychopathic Society

Topic: Cory, Osborne and I discuss a new documentary film about psychopathy, power and society... "Every meaningful change starts with awareness. In our culture, we not only praise psychopaths in the highest positions of power, but in many cases, they became our role models. Challenge your beliefs!

Freeman and Michele Seven join us to discuss civil disobedience and the new documentary film, Derrick J's Victimless Crime Spree. We use their stories to examine a quasi-logical fallacy called argumentum ad bacculum (appeal to force). This fallacy is the #1 tool of people calling themselves government. "Of all the fallacies, the Ad Baculum fallacy may be the most difficult to reconcile with some form of legitimate reasoning. The Ad Baculum fallacy does not so much imitate good reasoning as announce that every effort at reasoning has come to an end. Now ...

SCHOOL SUCKS: Pronoun Magic! Tips For Aspiring Politicians/Criminals

"We" is a powerful and dangerous word.  And peaceful people should avoid using it when talking about the actions of violent strangers. Imagine you lived in a neighborhood controlled by a violent gang... What if you started using first-person plural pronouns, like "we," "us'" and "our" when discussing the gang and their activities, even though you were not in the gang, you didn't know anyone in the gang, and no one in the gang knew or cared about you? Is it possible this linguistic programming could eventually lead you to identify with the gang and accepting their activities? Or resistance to the idea that what they were doing was wrong?  What if everybody in the neighborhood started doing this? Based ...
