What type of fallacy game is this?
Gerda Reith is convinced that superstition can be a positive force. It gives you a sense of control by making you think you can work out whats going to happen next, she says. And it also makes you feel lucky. And to take a risk or to enter into a chancy situation, you really have to believe in your own luck. In that sense, its a very useful way of thinking, because the alternative is fatalism, which is to say, Oh, there's nothing I can do. At least superstition makes people do things.
