Dialogue tip: Call ’em a Nazi

The most effective way to discuss an issue is to call the other person a Nazi, according to a study reported in The Babylon Bee. (Not really. It’s a humor site.)

“We found that when one person called the other a Nazi, the subject’s mind was immediately changed,” a Purdue spokesman told reporters. “The data is clear: calling someone a Nazi is a persuasive, compelling way to communicate ideas.”

Also effective: “Screaming at the top of your lungs that the person you are conversing with is ‘literally Hitler’.”
