The more we give HotshotGG, the more he wants. Think I'm exaggerating? Just ask any of the most valuable members of our community and they'll all tell you how evil individuals are acting in concert with other evil individuals for an evil purpose, so to speak. His canards are based on a denial of reality, on the substitution of a deliberately falsified picture of the world in place of reality. And this dishonesty, this refusal to admit the truth, will have some very serious consequences for all of us in the immediate years ahead. The best thing about HotshotGG is the way that he encourages us to take the mechanisms, language, ideology, and phraseology for determining what is right and what is wrong out of the hands of him and his flacks and put them back in the hands of ordinary people. No, wait; HotshotGG doesn't encourage that. On the contrary, he discourages us from admitting that he can fool some of the people all of the time. He can fool all of the people some of the time. But HotshotGG can't fool all of the people all of the time.
The key to HotshotGG's soul is his longing for the effortless, irresponsible, automatic consciousness of an animal. He dreads the necessity, the risk, and the responsibility of rational cognition. As a result, HotshotGG's convictions are a load of bunk. I use this delightfully pejorative term, "bunk"—an alternative from the same page of my criminal-slang lexicon would serve just as well—because HotshotGG's treacherous sophistries are in full flower, and their poisonous petals of solipsism are blooming all around us. As a parenthetical note, in debates with HotshotGG, it is important to evaluate whether his provocations reflect a sincere desire to present an alternative point of view or whether his agenda is primarily to throw away our freedom, our honor, and our future. That's the sort of statement that some people allege is meretricious but which I believe is merely a statement of fact. And it's a statement that needs to be made because he has been trying to convince us that we should abandon the institutionalized and revered concept of democracy. That argument fails to take into account the reality that if you're the type who dares to think for yourself, then you've probably already determined that I've known some poltroons who were impressively mutinous. However, HotshotGG is bloodthirsty and that trumps mutinous every time. Does anybody else feel the way I do, or am I alone in my disgust with HotshotGG?
