And what I'm pointing out is that I mentioned no political party, nor any
present-day political organization other than the European Union, nor did I
otherwise engage in any form of partisan politics. (As it happens I'm a
libertarian, but this isn't about promoting the libertarian agenda.)
It seems that these "neoconservatives" you have make you angry, and that
whenever anyone says something a neoconservative has previously said, this
triggers your anger again. I suggest that you rely less on your anger and
more on your faculty of reason, because when a member of the
neoconservatives or some other hated group says something, reality does not
magically alter itself to edit out that thing just to prove $hated_group
wrong. Reality doesn't care whether a political group is right or wrong.
When $hated_group says the sky is blue, it doesn't turn green overnight.
When $hated_group says nuclear war is a potential danger, the world's
stockpiles of fissionable material do not spontaneously convert themselves
into cheddar cheese. Any serious thinking about existential risks has to
start by taking that on board.
