“[A]s the New Year dawns – if I could change one thing about America and Western journalism, it would be that we all repudiate “information warfare” in favor of an old-fashioned respect for facts and fairness — and do whatever we can to achieve a truly informed electorate.” Robert Parry RIP Jan 28th, 2018

Best Summary of how to recognize the methods being used above
“The Gentleman’s Guide to Forum Spook’s, and trolls”
“As Tavistock’s researchers showed, it was important that the victims of mass brainwashing not be aware that their environment was being controlled; there should thus be a vast number of sources for information, whose messages could be varied slightly, so as to mask the sense of external control.” ~ Specialist of mass brainwashing, L.

Fallacious Argument or Logical Fallacies
This broad topic describes various social-acceptable means used by performers and others who benefit from obfuscation, to make the words being presented, sound like something of value is being said, when in fact, a closer examination will show that it is rubbish.
The presence of such methods should alert the listener to be alert to covert methods of suggestion. Fallacious argument is widespread, considered socially acceptable, and is the most widespread means to convince people that pigs fly.
If you can educate a person you have differences with, to not use these methods, then the debate will become one where everyone wins as truth is revealed.
When debate is about who is right, ’tis safe to assume that you are dealing with small minds in need of self-esteem, ego re-enforcement, and raised dopamine levels. You can also feel confident that your education is not the point, perhaps page views are..but not your education.
Two Thousand five hundred years ago, this is what Confucious said about such methods used in debate:
“But the moment eloquence or the language of debate enters, true reasoning becomes impossible. For the purpose of the debater is not to find the truth but to win the argument, and to this end he will often stray as far as possible from the real issues”
“Eloquence and debate are designed, not to decide issues, but to sway people, for this reason they lean heavily on appeals to emotion and prejudice, and make use of neat, clever, and sometimes humorous turns of phrase rather than profound analysis of ideas”
“Of all this Confucious was contemptuous“
Confucious by H. G. Creel 1913, Chapter “The Teacher”
Debate should be pursued to determine what the truth is, and never about “who is right”, the only solution users of these methods have at their disposal, such as Hubbard, is the same solution Hubbard enforced in scientology, it is called disconnection.
The four most often used logical fallacies by Hubbard are ad-hominem, straw-man, appeal-to-emotion and appeal to authority. ( whether fake as in Hubbard was a War Hero, or implied by being placed next to an important guest )
Many of these make the listener more prone to covert suggestion, of implanted falsehoods, because anything that stops thinking, makes whatever is stated thereafter more hypnotically suggestive.
No one who grasps these few methods of fallacious argument would have been fooled by the use of these methods by Hubbard in his books. Not ONE. I wish I had known of them when I was 16 years old. Teach your children now, don’t wait until they are old and set in their ways.
Learning these will protect you from con men in general, not just from cultic operators.
“A logical fallacy is a flaw in reasoning. Logical fallacies are like tricks or illusions of thought, and they’re often very sneakily used by politicians and the media to fool people. Don’t be fooled! This website has been designed to help you identify and call out dodgy logic wherever it may raise its ugly, incoherent head. Rollover the icons above and click for examples. If you see someone committing a fallacy, link them to it e.g. yourlogicalfallacyis.com/strawman”
PS: And do it before they disconnect from you…
Those that use these methods are entertaining you by telling you what to think. I have chosen a far tougher row to hoe, that requires dedication, mental effort, and a resolve to learn methods that are being used to confuse you, methods used to cause good people to believe lies are truth, by trying to explain how to really think for yourself.
Another symptom of use of fallacy to convince you of anything, such as “authority” is that, just as like Hubbard did, they will never credit the actual source that explained it to them. They want you to think they were the clever lad… so you will hang upon every word their “insiders” provide…
PPS: Hubbard used a phrase “acceptable truth” this is functionally equivalent to the phrase “politically correct” see video:
Stop back in a few days after I refine this screed a bit… And thanks for caring about your own mind enough to read, it takes considerable effort, but then if it were easy I wouldn’t be banging my head against a wall about it… These pages are about how to recognize truth, by teaching the methods used to control what you believe to be true.
Logical Fallacies are a way to proof people against various underlying methods of covert hypnotic suggestion without having to mention the word, hypnotism. Teaching these to a cult member makes the control methods cease to work, because all cults rely upon fallacious argument methods.
Advanced Students Only: Will benefit from getting familiar with the deep state’s own programs.. Programs being run to control what people believe to be true so that those who profit from lies can continue to do so.

One more END NOTE: “Yes…and one senator , Paul Wellstone , was against the Iraq war. Dick Cheney cursed him on the senate floor. He, along with his family, went down in a small plane crash.Bush stole the 2000 election in a silent coup d’é·tat. The election was rigged more blatantly than usual..and they still couldn’t steal it. The coup happened when the supreme court stopped the counting of votes. This was not on / in MSM. This was when the US govt. stopped trying to look democratic. They went on openly fascist. And the American people still don’t know .Bush stole both elections, 2000 and 2004.”
