Refraction (Bent Thinking) #6

  1. Prestige Jargon: Using words to make the hearer feel dumb, and therefore keep them from critically examining the argument. Refutation: Recognize that the other person is trying to intellectually bully you and ignore comments/statements/words that are being used to bully and refocus on the argument at hand. Example: “It is obvious that your argument to have marijuana legalized has serious structural flaws, obfuscated terms, disjointed logical connections, and is replete with non-sequiturs.”
