Post the popular dumb arguments with no basis that make people want to punch the screen.

Goal: make it so that everyone who reads this thread rage quits before they get to the bottom.

If women ruled the world, there'd be no war!
Raising the minimum wage helps the poor!
Without the state, monopolies would form!

Okay, 3 things:

1. that's not an argument, it's a statement
2. It's not dumb just because you don't like it
3. If you amend the statement to say "there would be less war" - you have a perfectly defensible opinion.

Yeah, pretty stupid.

Raising the minimum wage helps the poor!

Given that there are scientific studies demonstrating this, not stupid.

Not really all that stupid, given that in modern history we haven't had an example of an industrialized society without a government.

Scientific studies?

"Do not wear clothing woven of two kinds of material" - Leviticus 19 19

"War is a racket" - Smedley Butler

Premise 1: Everything that is sarcastic has no basis.
Premise 2: Imitation expressed in the form of quoting is a form of sarcasm.

I've seriously heard people say "no war," that's not just me exaggerating to make it look like I have a case.

I'd love to spend some more time on this, but not on this thread. But judging by your reply, I'd say you failed the cringed test.
