This is not a universal law, in the sense that it doesn't apply to all
situations. People can be manipulated to do some things, but not all
things, and not all people, and not equally reliably. There just isn't
any 2-hour-long essay that will make me shoot myself in the head
(according to the rules, no real-world threats allowed). This is the
fallacy of gray in its prime
