  1. They call that intellectual honesty. It makes her crazy, but intellectually honest at least.

  2. I believe the phrase you’re looking for is reductio ad absurdum.

  3. Kind of like libertarians. government bad, no government. anarchy is better than government. Although with y’s comment, don’t think libertarians are intellectual “honesty”, stupidity maybe.

    okay, i’ll stop being cruel.
