We have descended into sophistry and rhetoric on both sides.
The arguments being put forward are either naive, stale,
or sloppy. A bit more time off hobby horses and and a bit more
research on the ethics of violence would do more good for all sides
than recycling arguments that had lost their freshness when I was
an undegraduate in 1973.
