The Kafka Pandemic: Would you say that about AIDS?

 

Whenever you hear an irrational statement about the disease in question, say, "Would you say that about AIDS?"

The idea is to lure them to where you have rhetorical parity. If the answer is yes, you are on solid ground. If the answer is no, you are on solid ground. If the person evades the question, you are on solid ground.
