Argumentum ad Shibbolethum


In a reply to a comment on the previous post I made a typo ‘englism’ for ‘english’. I now propose ‘englism’ as a neologism useful to describe the type of sentence in which a series of ideological positions which reflect a liberal consensus are simply linked in a catenary which is believed to be adamantine.

eg.: if it was a theocracy that might be suitable but as for a secular democratic/representative nation it suck.
