Purely emotional appeals work with other emotions as well. Fear is a well known marketing tactic, for donations, businesses and politicians selling ideas alike. Pathos, Ethos, Logos are things every adult should at least have a passing familiarity with. Research when you shop or donate or believe a politician. Everybody has a story to sell and it’s good to be aware. Just don’t close off completely or you have no humanity left. There’s more to life than closing tomorrow’s sale.
