Appeal To Threat)

Appeal To Threat, also known as Argumentum Ad Baculum, is a logical fallacy where an argument is made by appealing to fear or threat of force rather than providing logical evidence. This is done in an effort to manipulate an audience into accepting an argument without examining the evidence. It is a form of psychological manipulation which is used to influence the decision making process of an individual or group. This type of fallacy relies on the manipulation of the emotions of an audience in order to achieve the desired outcome. It is often used in situations where the speaker is trying to convince their audience that a certain course of action is necessary or desirable.
