I think this is pretty good write-up. You can read it and look at your life and see if true or not, that be logic, Boolean. Also look at your involvement in scientology.
it's not that Socrates, Plato, and/or Aristotle invented it, it more like what they were trying to communicate, that is this how people persuade. And this is what they do. That is what they were saying and trying to communicate.
It's still true to this day. If you can create ethos, pathos or...
Here is Hubbard's rhetoric speech, RJ 67, when the Sea Org first began. So, here we are in 2021 and yet nobody has gone clear or OT or returned from life. It's a bunch of rhetoric to persuade.
Shoot, the Hubbard has died and not returned, LOL
"A major factor that influenced me when I got involved had nothing to do with Hubbard's rhetoric. I was influenced by the other members at Boston Org."

"What is ethos in simple words?
Here's a quick and simple definition: Ethos, along with logos and pathos...
yah, Hubbard used the term hobby horse. It's from England and he used the term back when at St Hill Manor, the briefing course and early lectures,
"The term 'hobby horse' is used, principally by folklorists, to refer to the costumed characters that...

as far as no. 1, that has nothing to do with hubbard, you give apples to oranges comparison. I gave you the link to read:
" Coercion is a form of persuasion that influences people's actions with threats, in certain situations it can be hard to...
thanks HH, several times you gave me praise for pointing out the rhetoric Hubbard used but you seem to get on the bandwagon, don't post here on this tread if you don't like my expanding knowledge of rhetoric, it's still alive and taught.
