Kestutis J. Eidukonis makes an excellent point


Boris Bakunas

Kestutis J. Eidukonis makes an excellent point when he observes that it is a mistake to claim all government officials and civil servants in Lithuania are dishonest and corrupt. To make a statement containing such words as "all" or "every" is a common logical fallacy. Absolute statements are gross overgeneralizations, one of many cognitive distortions that lead to emotional upset. And they are very easy to disprove. As William James, the dean of American psychologists pointed out, it is very easy to disprove the statement "All crows are black." Just show one albino crow.
