Statist Zombification of Non-Sequitur Logical Fallacy

I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…

The Oldest Rhetorical Trick in the Book:

(Donald J. Boudreaux) In his brilliant 1956 collection, Minority Report, H.L. Mencken stated:

If you were against the New Deal and its wholesale buying of pauper votes, then you were against Christian charity.  If you were against the gross injustices and dishonesties of the Wagner Labor Act, then you were against labor.  If you were against packing the Supreme Court, then you were in favor of letting Wall Street do it.  If you are against using Dr. Quack’s cancer salve, then you are in favor of letting Uncle Julius die.  If you are against Holy Church, or Christian Science, then you are against god.  It is an old, old argument.

My Commentary: The non sequitur fallacy is the Statist’s best friend.

[I said it before, and I’ll say it again]

*The Non-Sequitur Logical Fallacy is the Statist’s Best Friend (Oct.2016):

The Non-Sequitur Logical Fallacy is the Statist’s Best Friend

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following quote here, being shared by Facebook page, “Zero Aggression,” and originally posted it onto my own wall, along with commentary…

"Logic Fail"

“Logic Fail”

Zero Aggression: To oppose taking money from people under threat of violence to pay for roads, trains, health care, libraries, crime prevention, schools, cleaning up the environment, helping the poor, etc., doesn’t equate to being *against* roads, trains, health care and the rest, as some try to frame it. It’s simply being against the initiation of violence. ~ Stephen Smith
