Definitions for the Day

While doing a bit of research for an English paper, I came across the Agitator blog. The blog itself isn't that bad. It's ranting, just as mine is. But the comments are a hoot, especially when discussing police officers: Truly an evil conspiracy.

To sum up the comments, police officers are all sociopaths who only become cops to act out their horrible ways, and they are planning to eat your soul. OMNOMNOM.

Sweeping Generalization-A sweeping generalisation applies a general statement too broadly. If one takes a general rule, and applies it to a case to which, due to the specific features of the case, the rule does not apply, then one commits the sweeping generalisation fallacy.-Logical Fallacies

Paranoia-a mental disorder characterized by systematized delusions and the projection of personal conflicts, which are ascribed to the supposed hostility of others, sometimes progressing to disturbances of consciousness and aggressive acts believed to be performed in self-defense or as a mission.-Dictionary.com




Clearly all cops are exactly like this.

  1. Not true. Every policeman I've ever met in my life is a sociopath. I can't think of a single exception. :)
