12 Oct Anecdotalism
(Anecdotal Evidence, Nuance Appropriation)
Anecdotal evidence: take a single incident involving individual human beings – anecdotal evidence – and use it to make sweeping generations about millions e.g. one white shooter in Kenosha WI means political tribes are fighting civil war on the streets.
Flattening nuance to fit it into a strong polarized paradigm or dynamic.
