Damned Human Race, Mark Twain, pessimistic, humorous style, humankind, satire, poignancy, degenerate society, book review
Initially, Twain appears as the narrator having a serious voice which gives his age credibility. This is the false authority fallacy he uses the first. However, the instant satire appears, the satirical intentions of the author become clear. All the society represents the only stereotype in this essay, so this may be called the hasty generalization. People appear greedy, shallow and foolish. For example, when he describes how people murdered seventy-two bison for the game, then left seventy-one and a half of them to decay.
