Typically, the term is “appeal to authority.” That’s not what we’re talking about today.
We’re talking about Appeal of Authority.
Liana Kerzner (@redlianak) and Maus Merryjest (@wordofmaus) look at the growing phenomenon of angry quarantine defiance, the ‘appeal to authority’ fallacy, why some people love power even when they’re terrible at wielding it, why others love defying authority, and why social contract theory is a ridiculous disaster.
Whew. That’s a lot to chew on. Yes, thinking sometimes hurts, but it’s always worth it!
FU_Politics – we don’t talk over your head like Big Media. FU_Politics programs break down the barriers of mainstream media and click-bait websites to bring you honest, clear, insightful information on the issues that impact regular Canadians. We talk with you and to you, not AT you. But we need your help if we’re going to keep going. Big Media has tried to stomp us out, along with White Nationalists & other divisive forces afraid of the real voice of real people.
Help keep us going by becoming a supporter. You can give a one-time boost through Paypal at our funetworktv@gmail address or become a subscriber (for as little as $1 a month) at patreon.com/funetworktv.
Don’t let them shut us up. Because they won’t just be silencing us – they’ll be silencing you too. Think about it. Thanks.
