16. False and dishonest argument, we learned that in College English, or some of us did.

The question is for you, not anyone else, do you have the honesty to retract your lie or not?

Changing the subject or argument constitutes a false and dishonest argument, a fallacy of logic.

Education is free.

Logical fallacy changing the subject
Description: Attempting to redirect the argument to another issue to which the person doing the redirecting can better respond. While it is similar to the avoiding the issue fallacy, the red herring is a deliberate diversion of attention with the intention of trying to abandon the original argument.
