Wow, a comment specifically for the purpose of insulting me. I'm honored.

Dogma as entertainment? Nah, not gonna happen soon. Society needs it's trump cards and lines in the sand to avoid Hobbesian war of all against all - or so I'm told.

Jon, how about entertainment as dogma. Neil Postman, anyone?

And Hobbes's state of war is in the state of nature: in a civil society or commonwealth a strong king has the Trump cards. Or so I'm told.

If you think that comment was made specifically to insult you, you're a little to full of yourself.

Ah, not specifically insulting, just the usual expected insulting. Got it.

Just to be clear:

I think that he (landmark) got you (rockwall) this time (in the sense that his (rockwall's) comment was clearly intended to insult him (landmark)).

Parsing for clarity?

Doesn't work for me.

I remain totally confused.

Actually he (landmark) claimed that my (rockwall) post was 'specifically for the purpose of insulting me' (landmark), not that it was 'clearly intended to insult him' (landmark). There's a difference. The comment 'may' have been insulting, (I (rockwall) don't dispute that), but to assume that the comment was 'specifically' made to insult would be in error. (Or 'clearly intended to insult' even.) My intent, (and intent seems to be what we are talking about), which I (rockwall), thought was clear, (but apparently wasn't), was to express surprise at Jeff's claim to have very similar political views to landmark. The portion of the post which some, (landmark) and (S2000magician) find insulting was meant to illustrate why I found his (Jeff's) claim surprising. i.e. Jeff's post about the nature of people who go on rampages vs Landmark's hilarious post about the reasons being, among other things, weak anti-trust laws.
