My purpose was only to open your eyes to how others might look at your use of the article, and how oftentimes emotional stories are not really rationally related to any debates we have (but they are still powerful, and useful). Apparently I succeeded at some level!

I don't really care to look for stories about such legal battles because individual data points don't really make my case on this topic (even if they might be found persuasive by others).

By the way, the reason I was thinking about propaganda was I had a similar eye-opening with respect to my own use of language regarding the abortion debate.
