This Is About More Than Politics

Post 159828 by NoxAeternum deleted for the following reason: This seems like it's got kind of a truckload of inside baseball attached to it that is likely to yield up a thread a lot more about arguing competing factors than about having a decent discussion about the nominal topic of the essay. I'm not sure if there's a better way to post about this exactly but this doesn't seem like a great starting point for a thread. -- cortex
