JUSTIFICATION FOR GROUPING
—“The Abrahamic programâs second revision (Marx, Freud, Boaz, Cantor, Mises, Rothbard, Strauss) has been catastrophic. “—CD
—“That’s a pretty unintuitive grouping, what’s the justification for it?”— Trent Fowler
Method of argument. Just like we have math, logic, rationalism (formal, kantian), empirical, and scientific, we also have sophistry(pseudo-rationalism), pseudoscience, and mysticism. The abrahamic method turns out to be as perfect a method of lying as the scientific method is of telling the truth.
So, the abrahamic method consists of (but is not limited to ) (a) false promise (b) baiting moral hazard (c) creating opportunity for parasitism or undermining, (d) using Pilpul (sophism, justificationism), Critique (straw manning criticism without supplying operationally possible alternatives,), Heaping undue praise, and reputation destruction, by means of loding, framing, suggestion, overloading, psychologizing, moralizing, half truths and outright deceits.
Now, I’ve spent a lot of time on it, but you have to ask yourself, why, if mathematical, logical, empirical, operational, rational, reciprocal, arguments with tests of scope, completeness, and coherence exist, why it would be that you would argue by any other means.
I suspect you’re referring to either mises or rothbard, and the work is here if you want to go through it (as well as hoppe).
