An example: Henry Ford once had a problem with his employees. (he had many problems with his employees ) In order to combat their complaints he hired foreign workers who spoke a different language. Thereby confounding the language of the factory. This resulted in more profits for Ford.
Rhetorical bias can be used in the same way. Confound peoples emotions by getting them to argue about seemingly explosive concepts. Who profits most from such confusion?
Maybe it's about the rhetoric of it all. Argumentation is used to confuse people all the time. Maybe the whole concept of Babylon represents the whole system on the planet. Remember....You didn't build it.
The Divine Comedy is another...
Allegorical thinking helps with the thought process.
The tower, Phlegyas
Nimrod - Tower of Babel
The symbolism of towers. Dante sees towers in the distance. Up close they are not towers but frozen giants. Towers signifying families of power. Bring it forward to the present - Corporate giants? Wars between gods and giants?
Enter Cocytus - Go deeper and look upon the devil himself:
Anti intelligenablity - drooling idiocy - no communication.
The gods never get enough. For that matter neither does Batiatus. Perhaps he can't really be blamed for his atrocious behavior? After all, he did learn from the gods. And they can be so petty. Always playing their games for control over others. Leaving all within their spheres of influence in perpetual bondage. Including themselves!
