Yep, RANT caught me in the act of hurling invective. It was over the top; it was without any sort of rhetorical grounding. Of course, Rant is
correct that the bipolar liberal/conservative dichotomy is a putrid herring being dragged across the trail of truth, a trail long since grown cold
under the tread of millions of sheep. . .
I should have proceeded from a continuum based on a statist/individualist scale, a geometic regression towards infinity on the statist side, and
beginning with the absolute monad of the individual on the freedom-loving side. I should have posted a footnotes page, an endnotes page, a few pie
charts, and several appendices of ancillary information.
All of this, had it been included in my preliminary report, would have conclusively shown that I was railing against the statist mandate that I MUST
use a certain type of restraint for my progeny, and that those restraints are ONLY available in the guzzling SUV/Urban Assault Vehicle so hated by the
self-righteous guardians of parent earth.
But then, it would have not been nearly so compelling as my splatter of fecal matter that was an instinctive response to some hater that doesn't know
I exist, doesn't care, and doesn't cogitate enough to take his own prejudices to task.
Isn't life wonderful?
