A well-researched, superbly edited, humorous video explaining why every American, especially a senior, needs an #AR15 #gun. In all seriousness.

Or how to build the perfect straw man with a bit of a circular #logic thing goin’.…

His logic: US civilians need the same #firearms as their #military, because their military has been using firearms developed by the private sector for private use…

All the while, avoiding to discuss the failure of #Americans to organize and fund a government that would provide a quality of life not requiring a grandmother to live with an AR-15 gun (as if she’s in some Afghanistan?) 🤷🏻‍♂️

Oh, and… yes, speaking of other countries. The author does say that all the non-armed grandmothers of the world have been in grave danger. Like, you know, Japan? Taiwan? People outliving most Americans?

Reminds me of gastric bypass surgery to “solve” morbid obesity.🤦🏻‍♂️

Something else? 🤔

The 2nd most amazing property of #logic to me is the moment when a growing #human either learns to understand and use it… or fails and will never ever understand nor use it later on.

The chasm between logic-enabled and logic-disabled.

A learnable set. Non-#DNA (unlike taste).

Is there a #method for #teaching #logic and #rhetoric to #illogical and confused adults? Or is it too late? Any research on this?

I’m having great fun digging into fuzzy #logic:…
