Joseph James S. Serdoncillo Ms. Maridel Ramos ABM21 LOGICAL FALLACIES HASTY GENERALIZATION This meme belongs to the hasty generalization logical fallacy. By definition, hasty generalizations are only based either on a special or a small amount of sample or on a limited case or example that does not provide sufficient support to conclude things generally. In this case, a single group of teenagers vandalizes a park and there are people who would choose to generalize all teenagers as irresponsible and destructive, with the occurence of a single group of teens vandalizing the park, instead of directing what the have to say only to the group who had committed the act. They conclude on their own that the whole population of teenagers act like this with a small sample of teenagers that committed vandalism as their only basis in concluding.
