  •  If you insist on willfully misunderstanding it (0+ / 0-)

    Then sure.

    Properly understood, it is a very good argument.

    Indeed, a moral argument.

    •  Because there is no room for discussion (0+ / 0-)

      and disagreement on this site.  Certain people set the Conventional Wisdom and if you are a "progressive" you will agree, no questions asked, no differing opinions allowed, no nuances permitted.  Those who dare voice their opinions, if outside the conventional wisdom, are either "lying" or "willfully misunderstanding" or "rallying the base" or any other of a number of dismissive titles.  The conventional wisdom can't be wrong, ever...because so many good progressive see the rationality in it and really anyone who is smart and thoughtful and progressive can't help but agree.  

      OK.  I get it.

        Then I should not criticize you.

        Buk, if after having the argument and your mistakes in understanding the argument  explained to you, and you PERSIST in misstating the argument, then what is it?
