[me: ???] Nah not you
. I used a variant of dumb which trickered - to my own surprise - the autocensor. It was no cuz-word for all my own judgment.
"your angle seems to be a bit more ideological, mine a bit more practical perhaps"
I really like that statement. That IMO strikes right into the very heart of the beast.
Practical... What you, in effect (may you want to or not) defend certainly is very practical. It, after all, is reality.
And what I propose certainly is very ideological. It, after all, is just an idea.
Now what that this tell us? I'd say - not one thing more than we already knew (except, perhaps, you want to really say that I am particular idealogical - though than, I'd suggest, a more straight-forward word like narrow-minded would be advisable instead). Yet you felt pressed to emphasize so. Why?
See... that is why I put those words into your mouth you only cared to spit right away out.
