Have you ever found Chinese attempts at persuasion (狡辩 jiǎobiàn) unconvincing?

Myopia is an overused word, and "walking in another man's shoes" is an exhausted cliche, but the one universal truth about all of us who share this planet is we have not evolved beyond the tribalism of our basic instincts, which adversely affects our ability to overcome the objections already in the minds of the cross-cultural counterparts we seek …
