  •  Well, my mistake then. (0+ / 0-)

    Nonetheless, it's a trivial point, be it a poorly chosen example, in the context of what the author worked to convey.

    Markos! Not only are the Gates Not Crashed, they've fallen on us. Actual Representatives are what we urgently need, because we have almost none.

      Again, words are important. Just try to use the N word here sometime to make a point, and then argue that someone didn't see your larger point.  It wouldn't be pretty, and it shouldn't be. Because with your use of that word, you blind people to everything else you say.

      To me, we deny the power of certain words at our own expense. I will fight against comparisons to Hitler and Stalin in our current political discourse, because I don't think they belong there.  And I do it with no regrets.
