On today’s episode of The Causes of Things, we will explore the purposed leveraging phenomenon known as the fertile fallacy.
Throughout the socio-political universe, there has been a phenomenon as of late that allows the architects of change to perform a manipulative influence to either achieve a desired result or create a pseudo-necessity for change in society. Plainly stated, when a change in opinion or sociological shift is desired, a big lie is told in order to disrupt something as large as a cultural norm or as small as a local election.
This phenomenon is properly defined as a fertile fallacy. A fertile fallacy is a statement or idea that on the surface may seem to be true because of a spurious accusation or because of inherent biases of the receiver. Even though the accusation or statement lacks veracity, it is received as a “truth” from those that wish it to be true and hence will have a life of its own until the fertile fallacy is dismantled. Plainly stated, a fertile fallacy can be understood as “a lie that has legs” and will accomplish a manipulative function for the architect of the fallacy.
The fertile fallacy is a useful point of leverage in the process of reflexivity. This process has been the agent of change used by George Soros and his organizations associated with Open Society Foundations.
