Title: Appeal To Fear and Scare Tactics


1
Appeal To Fear and Scare Tactics
  • Krissy Cross

2
Definition
  • X is presented. It causes fear. Therefore Y
    (which has some relationship to X) is true.
  • In most cases, this is done by some form of
    threat, which may be to the person or to
    something about which they care.
  • The threat may be physical, emotional or
    spiritual.
  • Examples - 1) I know where you live, and I have
    friends who like a good fire.. 2) You know,
    Professor Smith, I really need to get an A in
    this class. I'd like to stop by during your
    office hours later to discuss my grade. I'll be
    in your building anyways, visiting my father.
    He's your dean, by the way. I'll see you later."

Picture Analogy
This clown is an appeal to fear, because a large
amount of people are highly afraid of clowns.
What makes this particular clown look so
terrifying is the hooks pulling on its face, the
teeth, and the different colored eyes.

Universal Example
  • Fear of heights is one of the most widespread
    fears ever. Being not as intimidating as other
    phobias can be, people suffering with fear of
    heights often try to live with it without getting
    a help, accommodating their lifestyle to the
    limitations.
  • A commercial about Allstate Insurance, invoked
    the fear of not paying attention while driving
    and having a wreck in the process.

Example 1
  • Parris You will confess yourself or I will take
    you out and whip you to your death,
    Tituba! Putnam This woman must be hanged! She
    must be taken and hanged! Tituba No, no, dont
    hang Tituba! I tell him I dont desire to work
    for him, sir.

Parris and Putnam were trying to scare Tituba
into confessing to witchcraft. Tituba was fearing
for her life.
Parris, Putnam, and Tituba Act 1 pg. 188

Example 2
  • Proctor Mary, God damns all liars!

Proctor was trying to get Mary to confess to the
court that she hadnt been involved in witchcraft
and that the girls were only faking it. She knew
that if she were to lie under oath that she
wouldve committed a sin.
John Proctor Act 3 pg. 225

Example 3
Danforth was trying to frighten Mary with her
life into confessing to be apart of the witchery.
Mary was so frightened that she falsely confessed
so that she wouldnt hang.
  • Danforth I cannot hear you. What do you say? You
    will confess yourself or you will hang! Do you
    know who I am? I say you will hang if you do not
    open with me!

Danforth Act 3 pg. 225
