needy, are we? i was

needy, are we?

i was composing my above comment. (also, i work during the day)

however, i don't want to do this all night, my dear.

i liked your post. the thing i liked most about it, is that it began to make utilitarian or practical arguments on why this or that hypothetical policy would not achieve its goals.

although my post was not really arguing for a specific policy, and so my hypotheticals were merely to establish principles, it was good to see you move away from making moral demands and instead focusing on practical concerns.

it was misplaced as a response to my post, but it was progress of a sort.
