I am referring to the straw man as defined by Wikipedia
The part I’m having trouble with is the word(s) straw man as used in this context.
Does a direct translation mean the same in German? Is there another word(s) that mean what I am trying to convey?
*This post was edited due to the confusion over the use of strawman over the correct straw man. Apparently meaning very different things in English and implying completely different meanings when translated to German.*
