And that's the fallacy fallacy you're committing.
#93 - mr skeltal (08/30/2014) [-]
I see where you're coming from, but I agree with landcucumber.

It's not slippery slope, because the purpose is not to demonstrate any causal relationship between events. It's more reductio ad absurdum. From Flash's vantage, Superman's reasoning is flawed. He demonstrates this by applying it to other things outside the domain of guns, but it is still relevant to safety / death, which is the root issue. He generalizes the ban process, and in doing so actually reduces it to something that seems silly. And maybe it is silly.
#73 - astayal (08/30/2014) [-]
I agree with what you say and felt the need to comment showing this.
#72 - landcucumber (08/30/2014) [-]
Slippery Slope is not a fallacy, It is only a fallacy if "B" is not a reasonable outcome of "A". Not to mention that Flash is not even making a Slippery Slope argument. He is pointing out that Superman's reasoning is flawed, in that you can't remove suffering from peoples lives. By removing gun's you only take away one small source of pain. In order to remove all suffering you would have to remove pretty much everything. He then uses a "slippery slope" to demonstrate how even the seemingly smallest things can cause harm. You got to look at the bigger picture, of the argument not the way in which it is presented.
#218 - larknok (08/30/2014) [-]
It's still a fallacy. For the purpose of this demonstration, I will generalize what they're talking about to 'Acts.' Both characters are assuming these actions will be effective (because they're super), so I will also assume that.

Flash is quintessentially saying this:

If we enact Act 1 which prevents suffering, then we'll have to enact Act 2 to prevent suffering, and then enact Act 3 to prevent suffering.

Then there's two ways you can interpret what he is ultimately saying. The first, is the way I interpreted it: in defense of personal liberty (that is: Flash is saying that *we shouldn't do these Acts because they go down a slippery slope to violate personal freedom and become totalitarian.*)

The second, is the way a lot of people have been interpreting it: Flash is saying that we can't prevent suffering in every case.

In refutation of the first interpretation of Flash's argument, he *is* committing a slippery slope fallacy. Personal freedom is violated for the sake of liberty all the time. In fact -- that's the philosophical (and original) definition of liberty. Moreover, it's inherently a dumb argument on Flash's end because if you reduce his argument form, we can see that its absurd (Reductio Ad Absurdum). That is, what are the logical conclusions of Flash's argument (interpreted for defense of personal freedom)? Why, we can't outlaw anything or prevent anyone from doing anything, because its all a violation of personal choice!

In refuting the second interpretation, you can just as equally reduce Flash's argument and show why its absurd. "We can't prevent suffering in every case, so why bother trying?" is inherently absurd, and I shouldn't need to even take the argument form and show its absurd in another way, but I will. We can't make friends with everyone, so why bother having friends? We can't read every book, so why bother reading? We can't be perfectly moral individuals, so why bother trying? It's obviously an absurd argument form.

that's like, just your opinion man, and it is wrong! I just don't care anymore.
User avatar #66 - seniorawesomesauce (08/30/2014) [-]
I believe Flash was referring to the idea that more people die from smoking, car crashes, and dangerous dogs, and pollution than gun violence.
#219 - larknok (08/30/2014) [-]
That's purely Utilitarian. Purely Utilitarian ethics are always bound to be flawed. In fact, the only interpretation of Flash that I can come up with where he comes off as a pretty intelligent guy is if he's simply reducing Superman's Utilitarian Ethics to absurdity.

The difference between gun violence and people smoking themselves to death is not *JUST* a matter of numbers as Flash demonstrates with a Utilitarian Ethic. There's all sorts of distinctions, personal freedom as one of them. That is: you have a right to eat yourself into an early grave, but you don't have a right to shoot other people in the face.

Hey fj is based on insecure people who try to escape their life through the net (i know what I'm talking about played wow for years) but fj kinda target something that not in their comfort zone

and the let's call the house nigger effect you so stole that from the boondocks the nigger moment episode

and annals of ponytime you silly you so did that on purpose

and to be honest the shit i fap to online makes bronys look normal

to be honest where all social outcast because hell alot fjers watch anime, and is considerated outcast so is watching mlp as guy considerate outcast outside the net

but fj like to attack things

I found it foolish to hate on people who watch mlp, i mean where no better then those feminazi if we can't create equality on here,least we better then tumblr

also the fact you mention some brony feel insecure about themself maybe in the back in their head they knew watching it was wrong to them

I honeslty don't care what other watch i mean now we got fj watching cute little girly anime, and god forbid if you insult it they crucify you, but they insult freely bronies alot of fj forget we on the same boat, we should not make a civil-net war in our own home

we came here to laugh and forget the hardship of life, okay yeah brony love little girl show,but i bet my right balls that 80% of fj loved and watched power puff girls (yes i know who made it)

so yeah i want to support the freedom and peace, but there was time fj did huge fight now their like more cool about it,or just don't care anymore
#78 - larknok (08/29/2014) [-]
1) I don't watch boondocks. I learned about "house niggers" by reading my history textbook and paying attention to Samuel Jackson's character in Django Unchained.

2) Annals is the proper term to refer to a historical account of data held in one place. If you want to think I'm making some sort of crude butt joke, 10 points to Hufflepuff.

3) The majority of bronies don't masturbate to ponies. That would be like assuming the majority of Dr. Who or Game of Thrones fans have stroked one to their favorite character (Dany is hot, but who actually masturbates to a drama?) I agree however, most fetishes (mine included) are worse than pony.

4) Back in every brony's head is the knowledge that what they're doing *would* be considered wrong by someone on the outside, but that such a judgement would be totally superficial given the actual quality of the show.

5) I just miss the time before all the brony-bashing when there were few stigmatized social pummelings of bronies for the sake of it. We're just normal people and the show *is* really good.

When the word "faggot" went out of style to look down upon men who don't conform to the masculine expectation around 2013, the internet quickly replaced it with "autistic fedora wearing neckbeard" for some reason.

#249 - larknok (08/29/2014) [-]
You would actually get more points in my book if you shat on Democrats.

The entire party dynamic is fucking stupid. "Oh, so I agree with the Democrats on XYZ but not on ABC, I guess I should change my mind about ABC because I have to vote for the winner!"

No, you don't. Vote for a third party if you don't like at least 90% of what one of the two main parties has to say.

Liberals is a vague group of people with no clearly defined lines, but they tend to be more for freedom over safety, except where it concerns the issue of gun rights. They're typically pro-abortion, pro-socialized medicine, pro-worker's rights, environmentalists, educators, and intellectuals.

I'm not saying that you can't be a conservative and believe or be any of those things, but what I am saying is that it's just less likely.

And nobody is destroying your country just by participating in its politics and disagreeing with you -- especially not liberals. There hasn't been a liberal in the white house for decades -- not since FDR or Jimmy Carter.

I definitely would complain if it was Dr. Who stuff. If the picture has no exact reason to be there and isn't rolled or isn't said to be random, I probably would just ignore because I am not one to thumb down people for no reason.
But on the case of MLP: I do think it is a little creepy that adult men like a little girls T.V. show. I have tried a couple times to watch it to see the "Adult humor" In the show when there really isn't. It is only there if you try to make it there.

#80 - larknok (08/26/2014) [-]
I certainly agree that there's not really that much adult humor in MLP. Well, there is occasionally. See: The punch has been Spiked, etc. That's beside the point.

Nobody watches MLP for the adult humor. If all MLP had was adult humor, it would be uninteresting and nobody would watch it. People watch MLP for the same reason people watch sitcoms -- they slowly but surely begin to enjoy the facets and nuances of the well-written, well-casted characters, and at some point simply begin to enjoy whatever the characters do.

Think about Avatar the Last Airbender for a moment. That show isn't a sitcom, and it had one long over-arching plot to defeat the Fire Lord, but it still made you fall in love with the characters. Why? Because filler episodes -- which the original Avatar was rife with -- aren't about the plot, they're about the characters and how they grow.

It is much the same with MLP. In fact, there really aren't over-arching plots in MLP, so it frees up the vast majority of the episodes to be about character development. And character development isn't something you can enjoy or fall in love with instantaneously when you watch a show like MLP. If you were watching Game of Thrones (which I love) you could fall in love with the plot instantly. MLP requires that the characters grow on you, which is something that takes 10+ episodes and an open mind.

Now I get that you're all cool, edgy and an internet master, but you really are comparing cancer to the fact that a bunch of adult men like a show for little girls and occasionally feel the need to outwardly express their enthusiasm. You wouldn't complain if 1 in 100 liked to use Dr. Who images to react to everything.

Let's be honest now -- you just feel emasculated and insecure about your masculinity given the nature of who you are as a person (I'm sure you're normal), conflicting with the general principles and expectations set forth by society (hyper-masculine, little to no emotional out pour allowed, being a softy and crying over trite things makes you a huge pussy. And how do you shift the attention away from your own insecurity? Why, by pointing it elsewhere of course!

Good job, you've spread the very insecurity which drove you to spread it.

Get real bro, Life of Brian was not a subtle jab that you need to be clever to get, get over yourself.
It's clearly and bluntly a parody of Jesus's story that takes stabs at Christianity the whole way through. Just because something pretends it's being subtle, doesn't mean it actually is.
You're probably one of those people that watches Big Bang Theory and thinks he's smart because he gets the jokes.
