Realize this morning that worst way to convince anyone is through logic and reason.

@art10080 Can I be tastefully rude? You "realizing" this just makes the destruction of formal argument and debate all the more apparent in the modern world. Logic and reason drive much of human innovation. Can you imagine discovering and arguing for gravity through shitflinging ad hominem instead of reasonable, concrete evidence? But let's talk about why you feel--no, not think, of course not--this way.


Oh I was actually referring to very specific instances for example explaining difficult circumstances to people who are suffering or non beneficial to the situation. Like a doctor shouldn’t just explain the steps to someone’s death to the relative but maybe take a more emotional/humane approach.
