Such a sad interview...

So much logical fallacy employed here, mostly Bulverism.  Unfortunately, it's hard not to run into these types of fallacious arguments nowadays in any subject or discussion.

Studying logical fallacies and inductive reasoning should be mandatory for all disciplines, if only to avoid stuff like this.

    haha. reminds me of the red herring trick. I think it's the thing where they just randomly insult the person as a distraction to make the person look bad as opposed to actually contributing an argument to why his argument is wrong. this is like inception lol cuz it's like trying to rationalize how to rationalize @_@. "logic" and consistency and not being hypocritical are like modern western ideas that are more idealistic but not realistic cuz people are driven by their emotions lol. lots of languages didn't have words for these concepts before exposure to western culture. haha, like logic in mandarin is "luo-ji" just a transliteration of "logic" lol. but I guess we live in a western country so this is still pertinent >.>
