On a point of pure (or perhaps perfect) pedantry, "Begs the question" is a corrupted usage these days; It doesn't mean "invites the question" or "the question must be answered", but is a formulation of a fallacy in syllogistic logic (in which the initial premise contains an implicit assumption of the truth of the conclusion)
