  •  I've started reading Bogus' paper (0+ / 0-)

    while I won't make any final judgement prior to completing it, he makes no secret of the fact that his motivation is to provide a counter argument to those who argument that the 2Amd is actually about the "right" to insurrection.

    This means that, whatever the final merits of his analysis, his paper has an political agenda. Ideologically driven arguments are notoriously unreliable for the simple reason that the preferred conclusion precedes and motivates the gathering of evidence, rather than vice versa.

    Nothing human is alien to me.
