*I am not surprized that that you would play by taking
my statements out of context. The above comment was
made in response to Eric's numerous posts advocating
torture, killing, summary executions and the like. If
two men both in principle endorse horrible violence,
then the only moral criterion that remains to
distinguish between them is that one was prepared to
live up to his principles, while the other was not. I
stand behind what I said in the above, but within its
proper context.
