Why do people keep speaking of fallacies such as kings and queens? ?
No such thing as a king or queen exists, nor does a police officer or teacher exist or rich or poor people. By speaking of such fallacies people legitimise lies as parents legitimise a childs belief in Santa.

vegetables are bad for you after all the
dinosaurs ate plants and we all know
what happened to them let's pause for a
the moment that argument was ridiculous and
that's because it contained a logical
fallacy a logical fallacy is any kind of
error in reasoning that renders an
argument invalid they can involve
distorting or manipulating facts drawing
false conclusions or distracting you
from the actual issue at hand in theory
it seems like they'd be pretty easy to
spot but this isn't always the case
sometimes logical fallacies are used
intentionally to try and win a debate in
these cases they're often presented by
the speaker with a certain level of
confidence and in doing so they're more
persuasive if they sound like they know
what they're talking about we're more
likely to believe them even if their
stance doesn't make complete logical
the sense one common logical fallacy is the
false cause this is when someone
incorrectly identifies the cause of
something in my argument I stated that
the dinosaurs became extinct because
they ate vegetables now while these two
separate things did happen the diet of
vegetables was not the cause of their
extinction maybe you've heard false
cause more commonly represented by the
phrase correlation does not equal
causation meaning that just because of two
things occurred around the same time it
doesn't mean that one caused the other a
a strawman is when someone takes an
argument and misrepresents it so that
it's easier to attack for example let's
say Callie is advocating that sporks
should be the new standard for
silverware since they're more efficient
Madeleine responds that she's shocked
Callie would want to outlaw spoons and
forks and put millions out of work at
the fork and spoon factories a straw man
is frequently used in politics in an
an effort to discredit and other
politicians views on a particular issue
begging the question is a type of
a circular argument where someone includes
the conclusion as a part of their
reasoning George says ghosts exist
because I saw a ghost in my closet his
the conclusion is ghosts exist
his premise also assumes that ghosts
exist rather than assuming that ghosts
exist from the get-go George should be
using evidence and reasoning to prove
that they exist the false dilemma or
the false dichotomy is a logical fallacy
where a situation is presented as being
an either/or option when in reality
there are more possible options
available than just the chosen to
Rebecca rings the doorbell but Ethan
she then thinks oh Ethan must not be
home Rebecca posits that either
Ethan answers the door or he is at home
in reality, he could be sleeping doing
some work in the backyard or taking a
shower most logical fallacies can be
spotted by thinking critically make sure
to ask questions is logic at work here
or is it simply rhetoric does their
proof actually lead to the conclusion
they're proposing by applying critical
thinking you'll be able to detect
logical fallacies in the world around
you and prevent yourself from using them

Kings and queens do exist in modern countries. Just not too many of them still. Have a monarchy
So kings are not a fallacy, the same way as Santa, is. Get the facts straight first.

Young Santa delivering a

Your version of reality differs vastly from the general consensus. Logically speaking, this makes your version less true, even if you happen to be right, at least insofar as truth is based on communal perception rather than measurable reality.

Get yourself a beginner's book of how to start the long journey towards some far off time in the future when you might be able to grasp the a few of the basics on thinking like an adult.

Is there a point to this nonsensical rant, or are you just high?
