This is the long overdue study of the Frankfurt School and Cultural Marxist philosophy which now controls Western intellectualism, politics, and culture. It was by design; it was created by an internationalist intelligentsia to eradicate Western values, social systems, and European racial groups in a pre-emptive attempt to spark global, communist (think liberal) revolution. Andrew Breitbart's historical notes are taken into the narrative.

“Hegel's system brings to a close the entire epoch in modern philosophy that had begun with Descartes and had embodied the basic ideas of modern society. Hegel was the last to interpret the world as reason, subjecting nature and history alike to the standards of thought and freedom. At the same time, he recognised the social and political order men had achieved as the basis on which reason had to be realised. His system brought philosophy to the threshold of its negation and thus constituted the sole link between the old and the new form of critical theory, between philosophy and social theory.” Reason & Revolution

Allegory is a wonderful way to tell a story. They're used for stories that teach ideas and principles. Usually with a moral outlook. Allegory is often confused with symbolism. Allegory includes actions and characters to stand in for ideas. Symbols don't tell a story. An example would be Plato's cave story: it tells how some people stand in ignorant chains and others see the light. Allegory allows people to express layers of meaning within there own stories. 
 
A literary example of allegory would be "Animal Farm", by George Orwell. 
 
“All animals are equal but a few are more equal than others.”

The fallacy of the broken window is possibly the most famous parable in all of economics. It was originally created by Frédéric Bastiat, a french economist, in 1850. It's essential purpose is to show that destruction does not help the economy, but in fact, hurts it. While this seems painfully obvious to most people, this fallacy comes up a lot, especially with politicians.

"Life, which you so nobly serve, comes from destruction, disorder and chaos. Now take this empty glass. Here it is: peaceful, serene, boring. But if it is destroyed...
[breaks glass and robots come to sweep it up]
Look at all these little things! So busy now! Notice how each one is useful. A lovely ballet ensues, so full of form and color. Now, think about all those people that created them. Technicians, engineers, hundreds of people, who will be able to feed their children tonight, so those children can grow up big and strong and have little teeny children of their own, and so on and so forth. Thus, adding to the great chain of life. You see, father, by creating a little destruction, I am in fact encouraging life. In reality, you and I are in the same business." - Jean-Baptiste Emanuel Zorg, The Fifth Element

What Is “Moving the Goalpost?”

The “Moving the Goalpost” logical fallacy is another one that has a fairly descriptive name. It is the case when Person A makes a claim, Person B refutes it, and Person A moves on to a new or revised claim, generally without acknowledging or responding to Person B’s refutation. Hence, the goalpost of the claim has been shifted or moved in order to keep the claim alive.
Example of Moving the Goalpost from Young-Earth Creationism

The classic case of Moving the Goalpost in YEC (young-Earth creationism) is commonly known as the “Gish Gallop,” so-named for Duane Gish, the former vice president of the Institute for Creation Research (ICR). In debates, Gish would very commonly spout out many, many claims, half-truths, misrepresentations, and lies that take just a few seconds or minutes to state, while his opponent would be left trying to boil down 15-minute answers to something quick that is digestible to the audience. When a claim was refuted, Gish would quickly move on to the next claim without answering the objections raised by his opponents

Moving the Goalpost is a little harder to spot than some of the other fallacies I have addressed, such as the ubiquitous ad hominem. But, it’s still a fairly easy one to observe and is mainly evidenced in two different ways. The first is moving from claim to claim without answering any refutations. The second is staying on the same claim and just repeating it without acknowledging the evidence presented against it.
