Apples and Oranges

flat lay photography several fruits

The most common reasoning blunder I encounter involves equating "apples with oranges." 

In past years, I've heard corporations equated with government, the FBI equated with the KGB, individuals equated with countries, privileges equated with rights, mild restrictions equated with oppression, opposition equated with treason, kindness equated with exploitation, equal opportunity equated with racism, and the general population equated with a pool of viable applicants.

It is a popular game but not a smart one.
