Every human makes generalizations to support their views on arguments. If you pay attention very closely, you will notice that nearly everyone, almost every time they speak about issues, will make unfounded connections by making sweeping generalizations to conflate an argument in such a way to draw a connection between two unconnected phenomena expressed from their point of view. People do this in an attempt to trick the audience ( i.e. anyone within earshot) to believe them or understand an argument
from their perspective. People feel compelled to be correct in the eyes of others.
Note: Generalizations are better suited for hypothetical arguments, especially when connections cannot be immediately objectified, corroborated, or researched. Generalizations should not be taken as truth, because it distorts the facts and obfuscates reality, thereby creating ignorance in the minds of the recipients of the utterances.
