Your prejudice clearly shows. First let me use the definition of prejudice which is from the dictionary (as are the other definitions I have used). "Prejudice," an irrational attitude against an individual or his supposed characteristics. Your prejudice is against persons critical of homosexuality and political tribalism, and against hard working persons in the market. It makes no difference whether your prejudice is self-contrived or the result of long deliberations amongst the lower classes.

I reiterate that while at our site we do not exclude submissions based on the submittor, his racial, sexual or economic predilections, you do.
It is just a fortunate coincidence that we do not have communists, anarchists, arsonists or homosexuals on the (multiracial) board of editors.

You have intense fear of linguistics (which you call word games). You have fear of the free market, and an irrational attraction to the plight of heterophobes. You believe that words, dollars, thoughts and sexual intercourse can all be subjected to committee review until a Hegelian synthesis amenable to the lowest citizens is reached. What is more, you brazenly accuse others of doing the same. This is incorrect. Normal people are not like you. Normal people, while at times being mediocre, do not try at all length to crusade until mediocrity is accepted as the new form of exceptionality. My inability to post freely here is like being prohibited from shooting a free throw at the Special Olympics.

Your Kantian belief that all objects in the universe are subject to committee review is laughable. Objects are only subject to individual review. And then quite often the object wins out over the individual. The collective is not an object. It is a machination. It is an amalgam. The individual is steel, the collective is tin. Tin does not beat steel. Ever!

The "pathological form of community" to which you refer is embodied by your website. Today's "fair wage, social awareness" proponents were yesterdays and five minutes from now's "smash the state!" nihilists. You forget that I read this site daily. Most members are either laying claim to the hard earned money of others, engaging in technophobia, or advocating violence against representative government.
