I always laugh when someone says: "everyone knows that..."
It's like the cheapest thing you can say as an argument

It's hilarious

Politicians do that ALL the time:

"Any patriot would..."

"An intelligent person can see..."

I did a post on this exact same issue about a year ago. Some of these are more subtle, but can be a good manipulation tool.

The proof is in the pudding.

Maybe it seems that way because people want to fit in and are to afraid to say, "No, I didn't know that or feel this way." Because people don't speak up out of fear of looking stupid or not fitting in with the majority, people start to think, "well then, everyone must know and feel this way because no one speaks up to the contrary."
