49th Law

49th Law of Power: Pointing out that another person is irrational and self-contradictory never actually helps to persuade them of anything, no matter how right and correct one may be.

Corrolary to the 49th Law: Sarcasm, creative insults, and a good throttling also do not help, however gratifying.

I will copy this law onto some heavy-duty parchment and keep it close to my heart forever....
I'll also take the opportunity to assume that the 'self-contradictory' bit applies to hypocracy as well.
