The hiding of many ugly human passions by giving them the appearance of reasoning.
- Envy and covetousness have been hidden with the reasoning of "social" justice.
- Attacks on property ownership has been hidden with the reasoning of "environmental" justice.
- the inclination to steal;
- the inclinations to force others to do your will.
Each of these can be stopped through reason by exposing the sophistry at work.
There are other hidden passions that have been granted cover through sophistry. One of these most conservatives know from being on the receiving end: bigotry. How? Tell me the ways.
