Potentially, a government is the most dangerous threat to man's rights: it holds a legal monopoly on the use of physical force against legally disarmed victims.
Here we have a case of showing an absurd case, (a 'reductio' argument). If someone claims this is anti-Jewish, then it's absurd, because we all agree that pedophilia is immoral. But citing one example is not statistically significant. Is anyone seriously claiming that this is a case of anti-Jewish sentiment?If not, then citing this one example is both statistically insignificant *and* a straw man argument.Example: "Hey, this murderer is a political Conservative! Therefore, this is a typical example of who Conservatives are."That would be fallacious, because it is statistically insignificant, even if a small number of persons actually asserted the claim.Secondly, if the example is quoted sarcastically, then it's both statistically insignificant and a straw man argument (a false example of your opponents reasoning).Respectfully submitted, - Poster
