The following questions are theoretical questions. They resemble real-life situations, but are not presumed to be correct in their analysis of actual events. The purpose of this is to view our reactions to situations in isolation, free of the fuller picture that incorporates all truths. By doing so, we can break complex reactions down to their components, to better understand the complicated layers of analysis we all use, and to recognize how fallacies in one component of our reaction can cause fallacies to be accepted by the whole of our reaction.
Also by doing so, we can free ourselves to answer the actual question, rather than ask a different question which allows us to give the answers we would prefer. In the interest of that, and of getting actual answers to the question, I ask that readers consider the information in the questions to the exclusion of real-life matters which are not considered. If you believe that the questions excluding unasked issues are meaningless, then of course, so would any potential answer to them be. If those are your feelings, then do yourself a favor and spend your time considering other things you feel are less stupid.
