/logic/ is intended to be a place for moderated debate. We've all been on the politics boards - the fallacies fly left and right, and it's impossible to have a good debate due to shitposting.

/logic/ is a place to argue free from such problems. Here, a well constructed, well sourced argument will be the basis of all truth.

You really should read the rules - they're quite a bit different from the other boards here.

Welcome!

I think they are in most cases bad for determining objective truth because consensus is not truth (See the bandwagon fallacy).

Except in cases where people tend to vote based on the quality of the post rather than opinion (i.e. favoring posts that are logical, civil or on-topic over fallacious, disruptive or off-topic ones)

See https://www.reddit.com/wiki/reddiquette#wiki_in_regard_to_voting

I think the bandwagon has a better batting average than any other system. The problem with reddit is one company can buy a lot of upvotes. The comments section in Amazon is very useful. So useful Amazon threatened to sue anybody who screwed around with it.

>I think the bandwagon has a better batting average than any other system.

Why is that?


 No.70

E-hentai had a problem where if you get 100 down votes your comment is deleted, and some users have much more voting power than others. If enough users don't understand sarcasm or just want to show they disagree, you can be censored, which shows the trouble minorities have in speaking against the rabble in those systems.

Have you taken the brown pill yet, mateys?

it's a tough pill to swallow! The brown pill was founded in 1999 by Sir Reginald Brownpill, who presents and narrates the attached video.

Forget red and blue pills, brown pills are the way of the future.

Where do you stand on capital punishment?

How do you justify your position?

 No.61

imo harmed person should be able to decide what to do with the one who harmed him, if harm was big then retaliation should be big so i do not reject capital punishment

Does anyone recommend any good books on the axioms of logic or on improve one's own ability to think rationally and critically? Preferably something old and trusted so I can sound holier-than-thou when I talk about reading Aristotle

>I want to win when I argue with people on the internet.

You're missing the point. Arguments about objective matters should be about finding truth (or at least logical consistency), not about 'winning'.

Sounding holier-than-thou however maybe can be a good thing to convince people to be logical so long as you don't sound too conceited.

I read this book a year ago. It's called "Mistakes Were Made (But Not by Me): Why We Justify Foolish Beliefs, Bad Decisions, and Hurtful Acts".

It's not so much about improving yourself but rather being aware of what people do and say in arguments. It's psychology, in case you were wondering.

Here's the link:
