strawman?

Dale Cresap's picture

Are you familiar with the concept of a ‘strawman’? A straw man is not a real man, and a strawman is understood to be a false representation. It is easy to create these to represent the positions of those you disagree with. This is a lazy way to attack your enemies, making it easier by misrepresenting them; exaggerating their weaknesses and minimizing their virtues. It is also fundamentally dishonest. My word teaches you to love your enemies. Do you see this as only an abstraction involving vague feelings of affection? But love is demonstrated in concrete actions. You can start by not misrepresenting them to criticize them.
