    I hope that somewhere in that process you'll address the notion that many "tragedies" are imbued with inherent, objective political significance independent of what anyone says or does in response to the event(s).

      I will try to address that notion, but don't expect agreement.  Or, rather, I may agree, but that doesn't mean that I expect others whom I wish to reach in my communications to agree, and that's a large part of what matters.  I'm not one of those inclined to tell the truth to people, not caring whether it falls on deaf ears, so that when tragedy strikes I'll have the cold consolation of muttering "fools, I tried to warn you!"

        ... since it's already clear that you and I have some pretty fundamental disagreements in some of these regards. And that's fine. I am, nevertheless, interested in what you have to say. I can certainly disagree with you while still finding your assertions to be thought-provoking and worthwhile.
