If...Then...

Nonsequitur


It's only a non-sequitur if the conclusion does NOT follow from the premises. "non sequitur" is Latin for "does not follow".

How do you enforce censorship without censors (i.e., "official questioners")????

Premises:

(1) You favor censorship

(2) The enforcement of censorship requires censors - those whose official capacity require that they question the value of forms of artistic expression - "official questioners" if you will.

Conclusion:

You favor official questioners.

This isn't a non-sequitur. But a conclusion that can be logically inferred from what you've said...
