“A philosopher operates with deductions. A sophist operates with paradoxes. A “public intellectual” operates with buzzwords.” – Jakub Bożydar Wiśniewski

§

“Abuse of words has been the great instrument of sophistry and chicanery, of party, faction, and division of society.” – John Adams

Word of the weeksophistry-(noun)-the use of fallacious arguments, especially with the intention of deceiving. Subtly deceptive reasoning or argumentation. Synonyms-specious reasoning, fallacy, sophism, casuistry.

Thinking it’s a soda pop world

is pure sophistry that

disregards common sense.

Jeepers creepers,

read between the lines

coz there’s no reward

for missteps with words.

Fallacious disputes never

a win-win, and often reason

is accused of being a thief.

Yeah, well let’s sip

another cup of joe while

removing reason from

lockup and do what’s

needed to skedaddle

inexplicable paradoxes.

    Reason gets locked up, because she’s seen as being no fun. I have found there is no fun WITHOUT reason.
