The fallacy of pure logic

Only a true ingenue would fall for this one:

Here, mathematician Manil Suri suggests that children should be encouraged to find answers purely using logic.

Everyone should think for themselves more, rather than relying on ideology.

Don’t ride along with the teachings of your left- or right-wing politics – or even worse, your religion I’d say.

Instead, try to reason out the correct path from common sense and basic humanist principles.


It’s the censor within: use logic, but also assume “humanist principles” as well.

But those are the basis of left-wing politics.

It took this enlightened idiot two paragraphs to make a fatal logical error, one that approximately 2% of her audience will notice.

( Polite golf clap. )
