So you say stuff like forced busing, [[GoodOlBoy states' rights]]... You follow me? Because obviously sitting around saying, 'We want to cut this,' is much more abstract than even the busing thing, and a hell of a lot more abstract than 'Nigger, nigger.[='=]

->The [[UsefulNotes/BritishPoliticalSystem British National Party]] isn't about 'selling out' its ideas, which are your ideas too, but we are determined now to sell them, and that means basically to use the saleable words, as I say, freedom, security, identity, democracy. Nobody can criticise them. Nobody can come at you and attack you on those ideas. They are saleable.

->Libertarians are for "individual rights", and against "force" and "fraud" -- just as THEY define it. Their use of these words, however, when examined in detail, is not likely to accord with the common meanings of these terms. What person would proclaim themselves in favor of "force and fraud"? One of the little tricks Libertarians use in debate is to confuse the ordinary sense of these words with the meaning as "terms of art" in Libertarian axioms. They try to set up a situation where if you say you're against "force and fraud", then obviously you must agree with Libertarian ideology, since those are the definitions.

->After years of [[StayInTheKitchen opposing the womenís movement]], for example, Phyllis Schlafly seemed genuinely incapable of conjuring the prefeminist view of women as deferential wives and mothers. Instead, she celebrated the activist 'power of the positive woman.'

->For what itís worth, a school shooting is defined by Wikipedia as 'an occurrence in which an individual discharges a gun and that incident takes place at an education institution.' This seems pretty straightforward. There is a shooting at a school; it is a school shooting... So, what better way to combat this alarming list of school shootings than to redefine the term 'school shooting' itself? By doing this, according to gun-rights activists, you knock off, say, 59 of the 74 school shootings, leaving you with only 15 real, true, legitimate school shootings. [[MetaphoricallyTrue ONLY 15!]] Thatís nothing. We can live with that, right? The sad thing is, media outlets are now using this new 'revised' number.
