I have a proclivity to pay attention to people's basic beliefs on which they construct their arguments. It's more fun when it's delusional because you have to get through all the furious vocabulary they try to rile you up.
A winning argument is usually one that enrages the opposing party, and then they are much better equipped to navigate an angry argument to make someone appear like a fool.
So it's critical to simply probe at their reasoning until they run out of reasons and declare their fundamental belief.
Then you understand that their argument is founded on incorrect assumptions about what is going on.
