    There is hope it leads to you making comments other people can parse and easily understand without having to jump through hoops questioning you about what the hell you mean.

    I will strive for greater clarity in my communication.

    I ask that you be less sensational and hyperbolic.

    Point is, you should be able to pass critique on a system no matter from which position you are arguing from. It is like saying to a non-black, you cannot discuss BLM because you ain't black. It is not helpful.

    I grew up in the UK, and I used to rail against the fact that it had no written constitution; I've been in the 'States for 20 years now, and have come to realize that the argument is rather more nuanced, and the British system has certain merits.
    This could probably lead to a better discussion and sense of understanding than to just shut people down.

    To be honest I'm more bothered about having to tell the government when I access porn.
