A kafka trap is exactly what you are attempting now. You are attempting to put me on trial instead of the subject of the thread at hand. You are trusting to the time since the actual events and the threads in question to cover for you as well as the general hysteria of many posters in those days.

You want me to feel guilty about those days and things I said, hoping I might feel ashamed or something, and you want my denial of guilt to serve as evidence of it, so that you can then plausibly do exactly what you just did - attempt to besmirch my credibility.

Here is the blog post where the term was coined.


One very notable pathology is a form of argument that, reduced to essence, runs like this: “Your refusal to acknowledge that you are guilty of [sin,racism,sexism, homophobia,oppression…] confirms that you are guilty of [sin,racism,sexism, homophobia,oppression…].”


In this case, you are attempting to trap me in a refusal to admit that I "thought Obama would destroy the US with Ebola" or some such crap.


In this essay, I will show that the kafkatrap is a form of argument that is so fallacious and manipulative that those subjected to it are entitled to reject it based entirely on the form of the argument, without reference to whatever particular sin or thoughtcrime is being alleged.


And I have done exactly that - deny that your assertions has any merit.

Kafka is a writer who wrote the short story called "The Trial."


... in which the protagonist Josef K. is accused of crimes the nature of which are never actually specified, and enmeshed in a process designed to degrade, humiliate, and destroy him whether or not he has in fact committed any crime at all. The only way out of the trap is for him to acquiesce in his own destruction; indeed, forcing him to that point of acquiescence and the collapse of his will to live as a free human being seems to be the only point of the process, if it has one at all.


You want to destroy me, not anything I have or have not said on this subject. It is a low and manipulative tactic.


The aim of the kafkatrap is to produce a kind of free-floating guilt in the subject, a conviction of sinfulness that can be manipulated by the operator to make the subject say and do things that are convenient to the operator’s personal, political, or religious goals.


In this case, you want me to bow out and stop speaking so that you can hold the floor. I am a much easier topic to tackle than actual one of the thread.


I hope it is clear by now that the particular flavor of thoughtcrime alleged is irrelevant to understanding the operation of kafkatraps and how to avoid being abused and manipulated by kafkatrappers. In times past the kafkatrapper was usually a religious zealot; today, he or she is just as likely to be advancing an ideology of racial, gender, sexual-minority, or economic grievance. Whatever your opinion of any of these causes in their ‘pure’ forms may be, there are reasons that the employment of kafkatrapping is a sure sign of corruption.


But please, have a nice day anyhow.

There's two kinds of my change my friend, a change for the better and a change for the worse, I support change for the better, thats why I laugh on most sjws rethorics.

I'm far from being conservative, I just dont like to ride trains that carry the word "progressive/liberal" and you have to forcefuly seat on and ride, or else... you are lumped as an enemy of progress, I just like to think things through and read between the lines before acting by force and loud words as if reason itself is on the side of the ones that speak louder.

targeting of a group, yea... but hey I guess any negative opinion voiced is targeting. So lets just call it that when it suits us and makes others looks bad, mkay. As far as playing the victim, I don't see that at all in OP's post. he/she displays strong confidence while making light of prejudice displayed against him/her.

Most of the comments bashing the OP here are bad and the people leaving them need to open their mind a little bit. I hope to offend even though I am not posting offensive content. You guys are looking to be offended, so lets start. I have a different opinion than you, get offended.


I think you responded to the wrong person. Or you completely missed the context of the post

Who exactly are you debating at this point? Me or that fascinating strawman with my face on it?

I am simply a libertarian for the most part who values freedom, even when I don't always agree with the expressions it takes. Defending it is a dirty job, but someone has to or else we all wind up living in cages.

ms pinke i was wondering if you would ever grace me with your presence again, i personally had to take a sabbatical. BUt it is nice to see you again.

on topic, this both sides are ridiculous when does one side just ignore the other and focus on real issues.

such as sex slavery, the massive amount of missing persons that go unsolved, the poisons ect.

c'mon ketsuko...all of us Americans value freedom, billions of people in this world value freedom....who are you defending it from anyway?......the governments of north Korea, Russia, China, and most Islamic governments are the ones that DO NOT value freedom, along with the few dictators outside those cited above.
