Take a look at the three videos above and think about what they have in common. They all commit a fallacy that is not specifically mentioned in our text, but clearly a fallacy of relevance -- the fallacy based upon fear, or the argumentum ad metum.
Then read this Wikipedia article:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Appeal_to_fear

Your assignment is to comment on the cartoon " the Subtle Conspirator"  attached (after the questions).

  1. Why is this cartoon an appeal to fear?
  2. Who is the person in the tent?
  3. What is the fear that the cartoon plays upon?
  4. Are there other fallacies that we've studied that you think might be at work in this cartoon?
  5. "If cartoons can contain fallacies, then they can contain arguments, since fallacies are indeed arguments, albeit bad ones." What's your view on this statement? Is it true? Or false? What are the reasons for your belief?
