Argument does not mean quarrel, it means rational discussion to arrive at a conclusion. Here are some bad arguments - (1) It's the economy, stupid. (2) Read my lips. (3) Get a life. (4) Project fear. (5) It's in the Bible/Koran so it must be true. The list goes on........
For example, if someone keeps quoting unlikely worst case examples as a reason not to change for the better, pointing out it's just part of a fear spreading strategy is perfectly valid. Quoting the economy is fine (minus the "stupid" bit, but that's just common useage and means nothing). It's just a shame when folk put wealth accumulation before everything every time.
