I’m using abortion as an example, but this bit of science applies to all political messaging. What’s wrong with this headline? I’ll tell you what’s wrong with it.

Good government protects its most vulnerable citizens; bad government kills them. Nazi Germany killed the weak, the halt, the improvident. Of course, the Nazis trained specialist to carry out these grim and evil tasks. In America, we rely on ordinary citizens to do the killing for us. That the murder of innocents
Everytime I’ve debated the death penalty with a bleeding-heart, I’ve heard this question: “Would you pull the switch” or its equal. It’s only fair to turn the question on them.
